A painting from a series of still life studies looking at objects which we barely notice in the onrush of daily life. I tend to paint in a fairly loose impressionistic manner, trying to add intrigue by the treatment of light and colour. It is my intention to capture the essence of the subject, finding just the right brush marks to express texture and form. An iconic mealtime essential in many homes, the humble squeezy sauce bottle hold many challenges for the figurative painter. I hope my attempt at rendering the transparency of the plastic and the instantly recognisable label is successful.
