Chocolate birds and Catherine Murphy

In progress life painting inspired by Catherine Murphy's work:
30x40 inches

Catherine Murphy has an interesting approach to figures, it is far different from her still lives. There is still a sense of naturalness of the scene as if you walked into a room and that is how it was meant to be. Her compositions are natural and abnormal at the same time, it has a sense of daily expected events and every day objects but the way she presents these objects makes you look twice and harder the second time to appreciate the extreme detail in her paint application as well as the overall atmosphere of the painting which creates an environment.

30x40 inches, Oil
