Tangelo & Bottle in Black Floater Frame




I love the color of this bottle, and the smoothness, and the creamy hue, and and and...  I was excited that the tangelo still had an attached stem with leaves when I pulled it out of the grocery bag.  So what else could I do but set-up a still life and get to it.

I ended up in one of those state of minds (or not) that us artists seek to discover every time we paint, at least I do.  It's what I call a no-mind state.  You have no idea what time it is, or where you are.  Rather like being completely immersed in the painting itself, all of it.  With the values being so close to one another on the bottle; I would have to say that overall, I am quite happy with the outcome.

  1. Love the drama in this! That vase has such a great contemporary shape...really nice variety of blacks and strong shadows/reflections.
