Artwork description:

Thank you for taking the time to look at my artwork; this is a Chiaroscuro style original oil painting of 3 lemons resting on a porcelain dish. Perfect for Still Life enthusiasts who love classical, elegant and contemporary arrangements.

This piece is finished with tiny dabs of a rich metallic gold glaze.

PAINTING METHOD

Oil paints are incredibly versatile and their creamy, velvety nature makes them a joy to use. Oil colours have wonderful depth and they react uniquely to various light sources, which causes them to subtly glow and change with shifting light.

Classical – this painting has been created using the classical approach of producing a grisaille underpainting that focuses on values, followed by multiple transparent layers of oil colour. This traditional old master’s technique focuses on optical glazing to produce a beautiful luminosity and depth which is particularly apparent in the way that different types of light enhance the painting.
