Happy Hour – Oil on canvas

October 21, 2015

Happy Hour by K Henderson

Happy Hour, oil on canvas, 20″ x 24″.

 This is one of my most challenging paintings.

The draped black and white striped fabric reflects off the silver and brass goblets and cocktail shaker. The transparent glasses also pick up the reflections and the ambient colors.

Wow this was a real brain teaser and required a lot of observation to get everything just right.

This painting  shows strawberries in a cut glass dish, on a piece of battenburg lace.

For such a small painting, it was really a challenge.  I like painting glass and I really had to keep focused to get all the geometric shapes just right.

It’s Strawberry season again! I love strawberries. I think they are the prettiest of all the fruits (until cherry season. Then they are the prettiest fruit)

The coffee pot is a 19th century family  heirloom which has been past down to me.  I chose this subject because I like painting reflections in silver.
