'Green Apple' still life by Linda Hunt


When I bought this bottle of rice vinegar I was mesmerized by the color of the vinegar and knew that I needed to paint it. It took some time setting up a still life that would incorporate the beautifully shaped bottle. The swatch of cloth that used is a brilliant cool yellow that has great reflective qualities. I wanted to capture some of the interplay of colors that were thrown from the objects on to the cloth.

This really works! I love all the analogous colors. The red line on the label repeats the color in the jar and is a nice touch. The reflected red on the cloth is lovely.
