Lustreware




5"X7" Oil on panel


I tried to paint outside again, it was a beautiful day, but I just couldn't settle on anything. The light was wrong, there was nowhere to sit, there was too much else to do!


I have had this jug for many years, the handle has been broken and mended, I can't use it for anything, I don't know why I keep it really, except perhaps for this. This isn't a very good reproduction, sometimes it just seems to be impossible to get the colour balance right and get rid of the shine. This is part of the problem with posting them the same day, I guess. I know some people get up to a week ahead and are then able to wait until their paintings are much dryer before photographing.



This painting is SOLD
