An Italian celebration – acrylic on board – 40cm x 29cm
This still life painting has a bit of a story to tell. The glass and bottle were collected over 60 years ago by a Royal Navy sailor who landed in Italy. The glass is a hand made Italian celebration glass. Unfortunately the wine in the bottle was long past it’s best so a bit of reviving was needed by me when I painted it. This painting contains a lot of contrasting textures which you can see below.
