Brass Against Red Backdrop

Brass Teapot Against Red Backdrop – 12×16 Oil on Linen Panel

Brass Teapot on Red – Oil Painting by Winifred

In June, I set up and photographed many still lifes.  This was one I knew I would paint at some point – and finally, the day came.  Painting the textures of the various articles was challenging and fun.The colors are luscious. To make this painting easier, I opened the photograph in Photoshop, and used the dropper, to select individual hues and values to make color swatches. I printed these color samples on high gloss paper and took them into my “wet” studio to mix my paints to match the precise oil colors for the painting. Very effective! Hope you enjoy. Winifred
