Tangerine and Egg

Tangerine and Egg
6 x 6
Oil on Hardboard
What a difference the perspective makes in a still-life.  I notice that Carol Marine goes against the conventional wisdom by providing an over-head perspective.  I guess I have to agree with Carol.  Looking down on the composition just gives it a whole different feel.  More contemporary?  I am going to work on my lighting for photographing today!  I was supposed to do lunch with a friend but they are calling for 3-5 inches of snow ( our first of the winter really) with high winds.  Sounds like a good day to work in the studio.

Here is how it might look framed

  1. Great textures and the colour combination is gorgeous!! looking down does give your composition a more modern feel.I hope the snow is'nt too bad and it does'nt settle!!Although it does make for some pretty landscapes.

  2. Thanks Azra! Waiting for the sun to rise to see if we are snowed in or not. I hope not as I have a bank payment due today. Nothing like waiting until the last moment!
