Test print – pots and vases

Here’s the progress so far of an idea I am testing out before going on to a larger scale. I have quite a few pots and vases scattered around my house so I thought I would attempt a ‘homage’ to Giorgio Morandi, one of my favourite artists. He is, of course, the master of this subject, so whether I can do it justice myself will have to be seen!

Once I have the final bright orange of the vase at the back and the creamy whiteness of the pot at the front it will look a lot better. Also, I am printing this from dark to light (as I did with my Winter Walk series) to add depth and texture.

This is my initial sketch done in coloured pencils. Obviously it would be difficult (but not impossible!) to replicate this texture, but I am hoping that I can make the image look quite painterly.
