No. 78. Orange Segments & Milk Jug

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

It's my wife's favourite jug again. I'm really going to have to go on a bric-à-brac collecting mission one of these days. I chose to paint the background as grey as possible to help the oranges to stand out -really, the B/G was warmer. I didn't even try to get the pink florets accurately -I felt it wasn't necessary. And I had a pain in my back from standing up.
