The larger still life has gone through numerous transformations. I started with a ground of lemon yellow blotches and then drew on the objects - a vase of lillies, lemons on a plate and a pitcher. I intentionally mixed up the perspective as I really wanted more of an abstracted composition in which I would play with edges by allowing them to overlap, dissolve and reappear. Not as easy as it sounds.
At this stage I really like the lemons on the plate and the lillies but not the overall arrangement. After many days of thought, I began to remove objects slowly, painting over almost everything with French ultramarine. Then I played with a table edge and background, then added the ghost image of a chair. The colour of the lilles was the hardest things to deal with. The originals were yellow, then I made them pink.
I will continue to ponder this one, tweak some areas and see what happens. Any thoughts?????
