The Orange Glow

6X6 Oil on canvas

I have a new-found perspective on still life after seeing the works of Qiang Huang and finally taking hisworkshop. Qiang adds a lot of vigor and energy to his subject with bold and confident strokes.

In fact you can't really call it 'STILL' life ..the brush strokes add a sense of movement and  with each deliberate, magical stroke the painting comes alive :) Now, I believe still life can evoke emotions ..and it is much more difficult to evoke a certain emotion in your viewer through a still life than a figurative/abstract/surrealistic work. 

It is a challenge and I am definitely  up for it. So, here is my first 'still life' after Qiang's workshop and I hope to paint my magical still life painting one day  :)

Always open to your critical feedback  :)

  1. It's come out well. The pic that you have taken actually makes it look even better.. with the shadow effect!
