Grapes
• Oil on board, 9¾ x 11¾" (24.5 x 29.5cm)
• Signed lower left
• Price on application

 


My aim here was to focus on the effects of placing much of the picture's subject matter in deep shadow. The jug, glass of water and green grapes are all shaded by an unseen curtain to the left. Although we mainly see the dark backcloth through the jug, the glass surface does reflect to a small extent. On close inspection the studio and its contents (including me) can be made out dimly.

Chinese Vase with White Rose
• Oil on board, 17½ x 13½" (44.0 x 34.0cm)
• Signed lower right
• Price on application
 















The stand-out feature in this composition is the colourful floral backcloth with its silky folds half catching and reflecting the light. Some of the stems appear to be coming out of the vase, but actually the only real flower is the white rose. Many of the colours in the cloth are repeated in a concentrated pattern on the vase below.

The inevitable blemishes on home-grown fruit give each apple its individual identity. It is the particular rather than the general which has the greater interest.

Chicken and Eggs
• Oil on board, 10½ x 15" (27.0 x 38.5cm)
• Signed lower left
• Price on application




Although the main subject is the ceramic chicken and the polished stone eggs, the greater part of the picture surface is made up by the cloth. Its folds, creases and embroidered pattern have received just as much attention as the chicken and eggs.

Exotic Still Life
• Oil on board, 13¾ x 12⅔" (35 x 32cm)
• Signed lower right
• Price on application




The compositional harmony is maintained with repeating motifs; here, the shape of the curved turia is echoed in the spout of the brass jug, and further mimicked by the pattern of the mat on which the jug sits. The sickle-shape theme is taken even further in the folds of the bright green velveteen tablecloth. The exotic feel to this set-up is enhanced by the addition of the kohlrabi, placed dead centre in the immediate foreground, and the pomegranates positioned close behind, the colours of which are all repeated in the brass jug.

Crocuses
• Oil on board, 8⅔ x 8" (22 x 20cm) 
• Signed lower right
• SOLD










A petal fell off one of the crocuses while painting but its base happily coiled up in such a way as to echo the coiled handle of the silver cup.

Eggs
• Oil on board, 7⅔ x 8¼" (19.5 x 21cm) 
• Signed lower right
• SOLD




I set up the arrangement for this painting one evening and drew it carefully with uncooked eggs. Early the next morning I boiled one of them, sliced off its top, replaced it in the eggcup and painted it as fast as I could before its glistening shine faded. The yolk and white took all day to paint and by the end it had indeed dried and shrivelled.

Garlic and Chilli
• Oil on board, 6 x 7½" (15.5 x 19cm) 
• Signed lower left
• Price on application

When starting out, the composition originally included another chilli positioned bottom-left. Having painted it, I felt that the key components could no longer breathe in the space of the picture. I removed this second chilli, happy that the remaining one, with its dagger-like form, was enough to add rigidity in concord with the small knife in this arrangement.
