About This Piece
The concept behind this pastel is light. The subject is top lit to add drama to the bottles and preserves.
Liz enjoys painting the figure: capturing gesture and using colour to evoke mood. She has also been gaining a steady reputation as a painter of still-life, receiving recognition particularly for her pastel work. She, like many artists, is interested in capturing the way that light and shadow transforms everyday objects from the mundane to the beautiful.
