La Brocca' is one of my favorite pieces. In it there is both tension and harmony. There are extremes in every aspect of this painting an yet it is still beautiful. The range of tonal value, croma and color have all been pushed to there limits. Not only have I made an effort to make the porcelain as new and smooth as possible. I have created a texture on the old chipped marble that one could pick the painting up by.
