Sunflowers And Green Water Jug
Painting - Oil On Canvas
I often paint from objects found in our home. I can then set up a still life scene so I can carefully study how the light illuminates and reflects on the objects. Lighting from a single source such a lamp, open window, doorway is referred to as "Chiaroscuro" which literally translates as "light into dark". This technique was mastered by Rembrandt which he used in many of his famous works. Chiaroscuro adds drama and tension to the painting. This work is done in oils.
