About this artwork
Artist Christopher Garvey presents a realistic display of glassware and ceramics set atop a wooden table joined by billiard balls. A soft light brightens the scene allowing defined shadows to form adding depth and dimension. 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.
