Oil Painting of Pewter Pitcher with Poppies & Fruit, 9" x 12"

"The Pewter Pitcher"

This painting started as a lesson for a student. We both liked the way it turned out so here it is. I love reflective objects and this pitcher was lent to me by my neighbor and "walking buddy" to use in a still life so I hope I "done her proud".

I actually tried to tone the poppies here down a bit but they just refuse to be upstaged by the bright lemon. The lemon had a soft halo around it and is so bright, you have to squint a little to look at it. Lots of thick paint on that lemon and the pewter looks so shiny you can almost see your face in it.
