Still Life Art Blue And Red Jugs And Bottles
Lenora De Lude
Painting - Acrylic And Oil
This hand painted artwork combines a few things that I love. I love stone, rocks, and things like that, so I painted a stone wall. I love things that are old, that is what the bottles and jug represent. I also like to put a bit of the "shiny" into a still life, which is what I have done here.
For this painting, I used acrylic for the wall and part of the table. The bottles were painted in oil. So is it an oil painting or an acrylic painting? I hereby declare that it is both. You could say that it is mixed media, but that conjures images of glue and collage, and this definitely a painting.
In this painting, several bottles have congregated on an old brown wooden table. Four of them are blue, and the fifth slips into the star role by virtue of its red body and gold cap. Behind them stands a rough stone wall in varying shades of blue and gray.
Stone is a wonderfully fun thing to fake. I love to paint a stone-like finish on walls and other surfaces. It's fun to make people think it is real stone. Don't worry, I am not a deceiver, but you just don't go around explaining everything, because then you seem like a child fishing for compliments about your art.
