Confined to isolated lockdown, portrait artist Lorna May Wadsworth has turned to producing still lifes in her home. The Sheffield silver, which stole the show in her garlanded double portrait of restaurateurs Corbin & King (The Exceptional Talent Award & De Lazlo Silver Medal at the 2015 Royal Society of Portrait Painters Exhibition), here takes centre stage.

Rendered from life in intuitive brush strokes, it evanesces from detailed observation into loose painterly gestures on the sized linen ground. Wadsworth masterfully captures the convex reflections in the bulbous teapot pair, which are animated with a portraitist’s eye. There is a psychological complexity to the interaction of the objects in what at first glance could seem a simple motif of ‘tea for two’ - perhaps inevitable for an artist in isolation bereft of her human sitters.
