About this artwork

A realistic painting of an assortment of glassware set atop a wooden desk by artist Christopher Garvey. A fitting muted background completes the scene heightening the colors of the subjects. Translucent brown, blue, and clear glass shine below a soft light. Their transparent nature allows a peek at a table cloth that's pulled into the background. By taking a traditional approach, Christopher starts his process by building layers of oil paint above an underdrawing. He then works with grisaille, and when once dried, he proceeds with layers of color on top. He paints with intricate brushwork resulting in a captivating still life.
