Olive Oil, Bread, Lemon and Two Olives

oil on canvas / 1 2 x 24"

The challenge here was reproducing the gold alfoil on the bottle.
Finding the right yellows and combinations of warm
and cool colors, create the perception of fine creases,
and retaining a brushy finish. I don't wish to end up with
a photographic realist painting, just a realistic painted finish.
