Artist's description:

Still life with a red vase containing one red carnation and an equally red Nerine, throwing a stark shadow on the grey wall; a strangely frog shaped magnifying glass sitting next to the vase.

This still life is part of a series I have been working on recently. They are all painted from life and staged in a shadowbox I have set up in my studio space. These smaller paintings allow me to experiment with different light and other effects, such as the transparency of glass for example.
Here it were the shades of green-grey and the play with complementaries enhancing the vivid red of the flowers and vase I found interesting.

This painting is sold unframed, but would need a frame. Please do get in touch should you need my help for the framing.
