"Three's a Crowd" --- SOLD



I really enjoyed painting the reflections so I thought I'd do it again. That and the goose. And of course, an apple. Ok, actually I did this yesterday right after I did the first one, and did a big one today. I've decided to finally post some larger ones here that I've been working on, but not the most recent. The one below I did a couple of months ago. I recently got some fancy new lights and have just this evening photographed a whole bunch of paintings, including this one, which will go to the gallery soon (15"x15").

This is a great lesson in design, Carol. The eye travels into and circles around the painting without going off the page. Love the color combinations as well--and the little bits of pink on the green bowl, vase and cloth create a wonderful harmony of color. You are teaching even when you think you are just painting--very inspirational. The square format really works as well. Thanks for sharing.
What is the size of this one?

Oh I do like this one. I've always rather liked top down comps for paintings involving flowers and small objects - so much more interesting.

I'm now very much looking forward to seeing the other larger paintings - although 6x8" is hardly large! Should that relate to the painting at the top?

How big is the big one? Looks great by the way. As usual.

The larger one is 15"x15". Thanks for the nice comments!

great style, composition and reflections. I really enjoy your style.

Carol, great use of split-complimentary color scheme. Just enough violet to warm things up. I like how you are able to keep the vitality of the smaller paintings. Do you still work alla prima on the larger paintings? I can't wait to see the others.

Thanks, Bart! Yes, I do these larger ones all in one day. I do this for two reasons: I hate the way the paint can get a weird texture over paint that's dried, and I find I can keep the same fresh idea if I complete it the same day. If I come back to it later, I've lost the inspiration I started with.

That's so beautiful! I'm really loving that green!

Oh, this is one of my favorites! I love the purple flowers and the other colors you used and it's a nice compsoition.
