One of the joys of still life painting is the opportunity to take seemingly ordinary objects, often overlooked, and capture the inherent beauty they possess. For my painting, Blood Orange and Blue, humble ceramic jars provide an elegant texture to explore, but the oranges are the star of the show, bringing visual interest with bold contrasting color. Everything is rendered with precision and clarity, and offered up for contemplation. This painting was done with transparent watercolor on Fabriano paper, mounted to a Raymar ACM panel. It has been varnished so it can be displayed without glass.
