Light and Texture

The sun was streaming through the blinds briefly yesterday, so I did a very hasty Still Life….not very good, but I did like the textures of the old, worn leather covered tome:

Oh, and just to set the record straight, the beer bottle was a prop I had commandeered a while ago….my days of drinking high strength beer at lunchtime belong firmly in my past!!


  1. I like this a lot, hasty or not. The book texture is great, and now I want to try a ‘cave-aged’ stout! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Love this still life, Sue. Thanks for explaining about the ale bottle. You put my mind at rest. 😅

  3. Alas, I still imbibe on the odd lunchtime, Sue, but almost never beer. Lovely composition 🤗💕🍺 xx

  4. Goodness, remember pub lunches and then back to work? My frequented venue was the Mill on the Exe. What’s not very good? I love the book and flower but not too keen on the bottle, overall vey nice 🙂

  5. I quite like it, maybe desaturate the wooden surface?

  6. Wonderful texture. Along with color, texture is my favorite element of art.

  7. It’s ok I guess 🙂

  8. The Bible looks like it was used by a Pilgrim.
