No. 58. Clementine Awash in a Soapdish

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

An odd combination, I know but I like the turquoise and green colouring of this little ceramic fish-shaped dish. It had been languishing in a press since we transformed our bathroom into something resembling a hammam -all stone tiling in biscuity hues- and my wife deemed the dish unsuitably vivid. 

I was going to write something pithy and entertaining but a Val Doonican record just came on the radio and I became confused.

So I kept this study as  loose as I could, given my propensity to become enslaved to depicting reality. Below is a picture of the setup I used.
