A Still Life

 

A painting of a dark hallway with a bright red light on a night stand.

Recently I painted this still life in a hallway. It took around 3 hours to complete. I really tried to focus less on rendering tightly and more on capturing “the feeling of light”. I think as an artist it is really important to understand how light works, feels, and reacts to different surfaces.

I tried to keep the brush strokes really loose and sketchy in this one. I was heavily inspired by John Singer Sargent’s style while painting this and I think it ended up having a similar feel. It has a sort of life to it, almost like the flowers are real.
