I have been scrounging around in my cupboards looking for interesting things to make up a still life. I chose this jug and spotted glass, and I always have fruit in bowls in the kitchen, and this is the result. I really like painting or sketching a still life and would love to be able to paint like magical Australian artist (and National Treasure) Margaret Olley, whose arrangements always look so beautiful. The colour is amazing, jumping right out at you from the canvas.
I have been painting very quickly (read 'enthusiastic!') (which incidentally means "filled with God") and my challenge is, to slow myself down and concentrate on the technical side of things, so that I produce a better result. This sounds all very serious, but I'm actually still having fun!
