Oranges and a silk drape

I had forgotten just how much I enjoy painting still-lifes! More of these to come I am sure. Here’s one in acrylic I painted over the weekend for my kitchen. I love the simplicity of this composition. And I love the way the black (the queen of all colours ) makes all the other colours vibrate. After I photographed this I gave it a heavy coat of boat varnish to protect it from the usual kitchen splashes! This also caused the colours to jump out even more.
