No. 54. Half-dressed Orange & WIne Bottle

Oils Still Life Study on canvas panel. 7" x 5". Click here to buy this study.


I set this up in my kitchen, after the children went to bed and the house was quiet. We have a kitchen worktop made of merbau, which is a type of mahogany. It's a rich, dark red that offset the orange peel beautifully. Because of the spotlight [you can see it in one of the other photos] there was a clear reflection of the orange in the glass of the wine bottle. The whole setup seemed to glow like something from a renaissance painting. There's partial nudity and alcohol; in short, everything a renaissance man could want.
