Metal and SpiceSave Favorites
Metal is one of my favorite things to paint. So when I found this antique, metal urn I knew I had to render it immediately! I used a lot of Transparent Oxide Red mixed with Cadmium Yellow Deep to paint those rich metal colors. I love the exotic feel of this painting, the softly draped fabric, the grapes emerging from the shadows and the dramatic reflections...and of course, all the shiny metal!
The frame on this one is absolutely gorgeous - custom, brushed-gold, engraved - it significantly adds to the lush, metal theme.
