Back to the table

Still life again

I love the spontaneous settings that are not set deliberately. While making breakfast on a sunny morning, I noticed the lovely shadow effect made by the sunlight falling through the window, covering a part of the table and creating a strong tonal light-dark contrast in the room. A kind of chiaroscuro effect. I immediately took some photographs and decided to paint this composition on canvas. I used my primary oil colours (cadmium red, cadmium yellow and ultramarine blue plus burned umber and titanium white) and the alla prima technique.

You can find a very short video showing the painting progress in my account on Instagram.

So this became "Breakfast", oil, canvas, 30 x 40 cm. View the finished painting in my gallery.
