A quick still life exercise for some speed and looseness practice. Tossed together in a couple of hours. Very unrefined and far from perfect (just like me).

I don’t normally do still life paintings as a rule. This is only my second ever I think – both just quick studies.

Now, what to call it?

Why is it that composers are allowed to call their works “Beethoven’s Symphony no. 5” or “Vivaldi’s Oboe Concerto in D minor” … ? It’s not fair that artists are expected to come up with some inventive and descriptive title – as if painting the picture wasn’t hard enough already!

I think it’s time to change all that.

So here is “Easton’s Still Life Etude no. 2 in Blue and Red”
