"On the Hunt" - SOLD

I keep trying to paint folds. For this one I squinted really hard and tried to think of it as just shapes and values, not folds. It really helped get the values right.

And you succeeded in rendering incredible folds! I like very much the composition, the curves and diagonals, the red "splashes" of the apples.

This made me think of Cezanne as soon as I saw it!

I love the colours in the "white" of the cloth as well

This cloth is fantastic! Very inspiring - I'd like to do this. Actually, I NEED to do this. Thanks for the reminder to look at shapes not things......and to SQUINT!

Love those cool blues in the drapery shadows!

It Works! Best fabric yet.
Laughed picturing you squinting away, but i now remember a professor teaching us that trick. It is useful for finding "edges" on objects without defined areas.
