Copper and Blue

June 19, 2018

Copper and Blue – Oil on Canvas – 20″ x 16″

On a trip to a local antique mall, I came across a copper tea kettle. Good condition. It was very dirty, but it was offered at an attractive price. After getting it home, I used some bartenders polish on it. May have removed too much of the patina, but so what. Great reflective qualities.

Used the pot and flowers in the blue vase as a prop for a quick, little demo in my Oil Painting class. Decided to work this opportunity a little further and add a few more elements. Loved working the folds of the cloth. Happy with the motion in this work. That is, the raw shapes of the Still Life elements and the flow created by the shadows in the background. Getting the “color” of the copper was a tough task. I am happy with the results.
