About this artwork

Artist Jose H. Alvarenga exhibits a tin of Madrigal Sardines in warm ochre tones throughout. Painting the still life on copper, Jose utilizes the metal's color and sheen as part of the finish. Starting with a light yellow pencil, Jose sketches the image and uses oil paint to complete the composition. I love the challenges of painting details and different textures, from the highlights to the letters, says Jose. On some occasions, he allows some details to suggest themselves.
