Locally to us we have a fantastic Wine Bar called Cellar Magnieval. They donated me a load of corks and i've been photographing them for paintings in my repetition of shapes style. I'm really pleased with the outcome of this corks painting. It has a great glow about it in different lights. Painting at varying times of day helps to layer the colour ranges. These paintings are designed to look photographic from a distance and then close up it is most certainly a painting. I'm interested in the work on Hans Holbein and his style. It comes ready to hang unframed. Which gives it a clean look.
One of a series investigating how reds of all different types can create the realistic glow of these Chillies. From a distance they look almost photographic and then you see them up close and realise its a painting. Have no fear about it being in your kitchen - They are all varnished and can be wiped down easily with a light soap and cloth. Oil paintings and resilient.
A collection of Silver Teapot, milk jug and sugar bowl. Presented to explore the idea of shiny objects and how they reflect colour. I wanted this image to primarily be this beautiful blue colour. I wanted the focus to be the objects with a softer and abstracted surroundings. Its a beautiful painting and will work in almost any home context.
