Oil on hardboard 6"x8"

Oil on hardboard 6"x8"

This was my first oil sketch using the new setup – before I did the asparagus in fact. I’m surprised to realize this is my very first attempt at a still life. Yes, I’ve painted a few flowers etc in situ, but not in a studio setting. The flower head is actually hard to do. My “teacher” here is Quiang Huang who does roses with the utmost facility. Check out his paintings. Amazing. Anyway, I’m pretty pleased with the glassware (an old whisky bottle) and annoyed with the background which got away from me – far to fussy.
