Tabletop with Blue Bottle

Tabletop with Blue Bottle

This collage started life an art workshop using a still life set up for inspiration. This was a departure for me – trying to portray actual objects rather than an imaginary subject. I revisited the collage over a few weeks and adapted the original design with a blue bottle and wooden pot which were invented to improve the composition. I am particularly pleased with the subtle shading and colour which I was able to create in the background and foreground areas – the materials are the most important element in this work.
