"Teamwork" - SOLD



Recently my friend Qiang Huang, another daily painter, gave me several sheets of thin blue plastic that I taped to the front of my "daylight" spotlight lamp (a fairly yellow light, even though it's called daylight). This turns the light almost completely white - near enough - which I am really enjoying! If this is something you'd be interested in, Qiang's 10-yr-old son is selling them - just go to Qiang's blog and click on North Light Filter.

Hi Carol,
All your apples series so far is just lovely. I can't only see the painting, after I read the title, a (or 'the') whole story starts to build up in my mind. This one, for instance, is so sweet...
Best regards,
Carolina

Carol, I love your work! I have been working from photos, but want to work from life. Would you be willing to share a picture of your basic still life set up (surface, draping, light source, position to your work station??) I need help! Thanks so much. Karen

Nice work Carol...this is one of my favorties for some reason? I checked out your friend Qiang Huang and their work is lovely. What fun it must be to be able to paint every day. Do you sell many pieces of your work?

Love that creamy color inside the cup. It glows but softly.

I love this piece... how do you make everything look so soft? Do you use a lot of liquin or another medium?

Thanks you guys! To answer your questions:

Karen- Check out my FAQ page (you can find it on my blog, right side, scroll down a bit). You'll see a picture of my shadow box. If you'd like more info, email me at: me@carolmarine.com.

Debbie- Thanks! I sold more before the economy went south. Check for the "sold"'s after each posting title to see what has sold.

Ashley- I use a medium I mix: 2 parts linseed oil | 1 part stand oil | 1 part mineral spirits. Hope that helps!

Love the lighting in this...the red glow on the cup and the strong red reflection of the apple. Really nice!
