Artist's description:

This variation on a classical still-life is not purely a creative exercise, but an intimate look into the artist’s studio. Over the years I have collected a lot of mementoes that sometimes find their ways into my paintings: objects in glass and plaster, ornaments and fabrics, curious artifacts from my travels.

I enjoy the way that through subtle details the same object can appear lively or calm, vibrant or subdued.

I always mix my colours in daylight, creating my own palette before starting the painting. Using high-quality natural canvas of my own preparation as a surface I then go on to explore such wonders as the difference in the colour of shadows cast by different objects or the smooth surface of glass compared to the texture of dried flowers.

Materials used:

heavy-duty natural canvas, triple-primed, oil paints

Contemplation in blue (2016)
