Still life with wrought copper jug and physalis

Size: 60 x 80 cm (31.5 x 24")
Medium: Oil on canvas
Year made: 2020

This copper jug was acquired at Malta’s flea market some time ago… I wanted to paint it one day, and it seems this day has come finally. I like its warm reddish tone with greenery tint and how light vibrates when reflecting off it.

The painting features mix of impressionistic and academic approaches. It was created using professional oil paints Schmincke and superb linen canvas Lanificio Prato (Italy). Linen canvas is stretched over gallery wooden frame (4 cm/ 1.5 inch frame depth) making contemporary appearance of the painting (framing is not required, but can be done upon one’s desire).
