Socket

Socket: Oil on 16" x 12" wrapped canvas $400

I like the idea of taking objects that you might not expect to see in a traditional still life,  look for me to expand on this idea a little. Most of the painting has a great warmth to it, so for my little socket and what ever you call the thing with the elbow, I decided I would try and paint them using cooler colors. My hope was that the difference in temperature and contrast against everything else would help to bring focus to this area. I know the rule of warm colors come forward and cool colors recede but that isn't always true.

To purchase this painting visit me Etsy shop

Enjoy, comment welcome
