Chinese Vase. Chinese Lanterns.

Chinese Vase. Chinese Lanterns.
12 x 16 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

Fresh off the easel, so still very wet. (Sorry for the glare.)

If you have been following my blog for awhile, you know I love pottery with blue decoration.Various vases, pitchers, dishes with Blue Willow, Flow or other classic blue and white patterns often star in my still life set ups. So I started this arrangement with the vase as the intended focal point, then added the chalice for height and the chinese lantern blossoms for movement and complimentary color harmony with the blue. A few other smaller pieces of fruit for color and  eye movement.

Studying with the fabulous artist Qiang Huang. Day 1 of 3. More to come tomorrow.
