'Pewter jug', 2020 

(oil on board, 22.2 x 18.3 cm) 

I love the work of William Nicholson - particularly his rendering of shiny and reflective objects - and I wanted to try this technical challenge. I borrowed the jug from a friend and I was thinking of Rembrandt’s small portrait of Jacob III de Gheyn when I painted the cool blended background that frames the object.
