Abstract Containers

This still life painting was done last year when I was “into” still life paintings. This art is semi-abstract, no lines are super straight and background containers appear thru foreground containers. The use of a variety of colors also help give bottles their shapes. Ink and watercolor.

An Autumn Still Life

The colors of autumn excite everyone. My painting is what you may find at a country farm or at a store display. Corn stalks, old corn, dried squash and ripe, full pumpkins surround this old milk container and wicker basket. I’ve tossed in a few leaves to complete the scene.
Ink and watercolor.

A Simple Little Still Life

Still life paintings are fun to do. The actual pots have their own look and colors but I change them as I build my own impression. I also add items for interest like the little green plant coming from one of the pots. Unlike a photograph, a painting can be changed to offer viewers a more personal touch and vision from the artist. Enjoy this simple little still life. Ink and watercolor.

Objects And Shadows

I sketched my image on the watercolor paper then randomly stroked watercolor washes on the background. I used some mystic to blot out the color. Because I could see my image, I could add color where I wanted. I used various Sharpies to define my objects then added bold black shadows. Ink and watercolor.

Containers In Color

I hope you enjoy this colorful display of bottles, jugs and pots in this semi-realistic painting. My idea was to be loose, add lots of color and to have all objects transparent. I met my goal. At times, it's fun to stray away from how we normally draw and paint. Ink and watercolor.
