I love the color of the peach and the way you made the white plate shine.

This is a good one Carol. Love the shadow of the tines.

Love that fork! You don't see many paintings with a fork coming right at you. Great job.

Ciaran said...

oh wow. That is the peachiest peach, the forkiest fork and platiest plate..
Just perfect.

Mary Sheehan Winn said...

wow, impossibly rich grays set off the color so well.
This peach is jumping off the screen. And your drawing abilty, is, as always, right on.

Rusty Jones said...

Very nice. Thanks for the digital photography information. I've really enjoyed the cups you've been painting too.

Beautiful as always. Im lovin the transition strokes on the peach!

Anyone got reviews of exposingyourself ebook? I dont see any kind of samples or reviews of the book. Just a paypal button and the glare/nonglare image.

This one is just beautiful. What a great combination, and as was commented earlier, the fork coming at you is so true, and with such a rich shadow. I love how just those few strokes make the peach. One of your finest!

sometimes just using the scan function on my photocopier does
best for me - putting a cloth or towel over the picture helps when
the lid doesn't close all the way.

Once it's scanned in - the pic and colors can be manipulated by photoshop.

I love the highlights on the fork. Thanks for the info - photographing my work continues to be a struggle so I'm excited to check it out!

Beautiful painting - such a gorgeous peach!!! I have to tell you how much I enjoy getting your emails each day with a new painting. You do great work!!! I paint mostly in watercolor, but have ventured into oils with your inspiration. It's not as easy as you make it look!

your foreshortening is always awesome. great painting!

Carol!

The best part about this painting is the fork and its placement. Its stretched out shadow just makes it that much more awesome.

Great job with that!
