Pears for breakfast - Large Contemporary Original Fine art Watercolour Still Life Painting.

Contemporary and fresh watercolour still life with sunny yellow tulips, blue and white pottery, pears and a few cubist touches. Bright, modern and colourful this watercolour is painted in an expressive style, with distorted perspective and abstract sections. This is the most ambitious still life I've ever painted, much larger and more complex then my normal paintings.
I've used watersoluble pencils, a wax candle and oil pastels in addition to watercolours to create different textures within the painting.

To see more information about the steps I went through in creating this painting have a look at my recent blog post: http://whetnallwatercolours.blogspot.com/2012/01/new-year-new-career-new-paintings.html

This watercolour is painted on medium weight (300gsm), acid free watercolour paper.
It would look stunning in a cream or white mount and modern frame. I'd recommend using an acid free mount (mat) as low cost acidic mount board can damage the art work. The last two photos show how this painting might look framed.

Sold unframed for ease of postage
Size: 19" x 14" (48cm x 36cm)

This painting was created in a smoke free, pet free environment.

My love of new techniques and styles means that everything I paint is a new adventure. I hope some of that adventure shows in the finished work! This painting would make a beautiful and original feature on any wall. Many people would think nothing of spending 100s or 1000s on a new TV or piece of furniture that will last a few years, but a beautiful work of art can be something to inspire, enjoy and contemplate for life!
