Chrysanthemums and apples - oil on canvas (46 cm X 38 cm) by Benoit Philippe
I set-up this still life in our dining room. The bowl came from Russia. After the first session from life, I re-worked this painting many times and over several months, adding the apple on the left and the two paintings in the background.
I also paid a particular attention to texture (using painting knives as well as hard and soft brushes) and edges.
