Still Life

I look forward to setting up my still life compositions in the Studio!  It usually starts with a trip to the Market:  the farmer’s and antique markets, even the regular grocery store in the winter months.  The fruit and veg  all look so beautiful,  glossy and fresh, and I cannot resist antique kitchen ware.  I love the signs of use on everyday objects,  ironstone plates and cups,  old wooden handled knives and pickle forks.  I go gaga for anything enamel of which I have quite a collection.  I just cannot pass up a tiny, delicate china cup,  oh I could go on and on!  Then setting up the composition  in my Studio is like getting a set ready for a picture shoot, the light has to be directed on to the table, what are those shadows doing,  do I have a piece of purple cloth to set off those intensely coloured Fall squash?  The smell of my oils…
