You've succeeded brilliantly with this one - the Kiwi are perfection, and that one highlight on the plate makes the whole painting sing.
What a fantastic composition and color scheme. Wonderful painting, with a bit of mystery! Your studio (earlier post) exterior looks great. So very sorry to read about your husband's Dad--will keep you all in our prayers.
Success! Very effective. One of these days I'm going to learn to put down a stroke and then leave it alone. It really does require discipline...
Very Manet like. A nice economy of brush strokes. Well done.
This is so eye-catching; I think I love every stroke!
Carol - I'm glad to see you have chosen some darker images lately, darker shadows, etc. I like these very much. Your canvas - do you use stretched or canvas panels? Jen
This piece is amazing Carol. If I put out a painting like this, I'd think I'd died and gone to heaven!Yesterday's kicks butt too. I'm sayin' again girl - you WILL be in the art history books. No doubt in my mind!
"I am always trying to strike a balance between loose & still recognizable."You won. I actually sucked in my breathe when I saw this one.
The warm ground peeking through those buttery neutral grays really whets my appetite. With broken strokes you've created a lot of overlapping planes, giving much space within the compressed format.Never have thought of you as particularly fiddly, but think you're right on here with the active brushwork. Good job!Happy Holidays!
These colors are spot-on; me likey, Filbert.I have a little book in my studio: on nothing but color combinations. Its audience is surface designers (fabric/wallpaper, etc.) and the inclusion of 'black' (the darkest value gray) ups the sophistication of a design. I notice a buzz here when you employ more dark values; but then maybe I see what I look for.....I haven't any kiwis but I COULD do a painting of holiday leftovers.
My new desktop backround :D
