Still life with vase and oil can

Trying artificial light in my still life setups. Final larger painting for open studio. (well maybe one more...)

Still life with vase and oil can, 36x33 cm.

Go to to see if this painting is still available.

Awesome result, Jos. Your handling of the light is just beautiful. What is the light source here? Also love the palette. Nice job.

hello Candace,

thnxx.. Light sources were a fluorescent tube on the ceiling (philips tld 930=3000K) and a slightly warmer halogen spot light, placed just above the setup. On my easel I had 2 of the same fluorescent tubes, plus a halfway exposed 950 tube (5000K) to make the light slightly cooler than in the subject. This way I tried to get some of the yellowness of the light in the painting..
