A contemporary dutch still-life artist I have recently come across is Mark Lijftogt, I am not really certain how I stumbled across his work, but boy am I glad I did!
I absolutely love the reflections in the green bottle above, how the white plate is distorted in the reflection and how you see just a slight hint of his easel.
The way he captures the quite mood of simple objects is something that just speaks to me, I like how all the colors in his paintings are muted, like you know the weather was a bit overcast outside when he was at his easel.
Well, here are a few more images to enjoy and I encourage you to visit his website to see more of his work.
Have a wonderful weekend,
