This is a small painting I enjoyed making shortly after I moved into my new studio space. Morandi is a favourite painter of mine and I very much had his work in mind while I was painting this. Given the limited palette, I was able to focus purely on the tonal shifts to give a sense of form and light. The painting was painted from life using the sight size method, where the subject is placed directly beside the artwork, and a view point is found a few paces back.
