Detail - Candles and Rose

The reference images I took for this painting sat on my computer for quite a few years before I decided to revisit them. I have to admit I was happy I did as I designed more breathing space around the central objects in this still life. I felt I took a chance with the complimentary colours here as red and green although it is very commonly used it can be tricky to make it work without getting too much out of my control. It has obvious symmetry and a formal placement of items, with only small hints of disbalance. The theme is not so obvious in this painting though I am very pleased with its outcome!
