Oil on canvas on wooden panel

Size: 40x28 cm


Peeled lemon on marble

  • Oil painting, on canvas applied on wooden panel, depicting a contemporary still life.

    A lemon with its peel spiralling horizontally sits on a ledge on top of a slab of white marble. The chiaroscuro technique enhances the strong contrast between the subject and the very dark background and gives an illusion of three-dimensional quality and a sense of mystery. 

    Upon request the painting can be framed for an additional cost.
