Pear Lunch


sold

For those of you who've been reading my blog lately, this is the painting I told you about - the first one when I started listening to podcasts while I paint. I LOVE this painting. It was painted entirely by the right side of my brain, while my left side listened to people talking about art (for lack of any kind of better understanding of my brain). I've been doing it the same way ever since!

Ps. My son came up with the title.

Pear lunch is very nice! I do find it funny that you have only just now discovered the joy of audiobooks/podcasts. As a medical illustrator I find I have to wait until all the details are figured out (ie where the true course of the axillary nerve is or how a muscle attaches) before I begin the audiobook. Rendering is fun time.
Happy listening!

Wow. It's fascinating hearing about your processes, and this is so clearly coming from a different place. The vitality, freshness and life in your brushstrokes - this is one of those rare paintings where yuu get that lovely sense that the artist just dashed it off in a few careless minutes, which somehow makes us feel light and carefree in the looking at it. Magical.

Awesome color, Carole!
I too am a podcast listener as I paint. It helps me get into the "zone". Thanks for sharing the "Savvy Painter" podcast with us. I am really enjoying it. I was running out of art podcasts to listen to.

I bet your son has eaten lots of your setups. What do you call it, the set up picnic? I love your new book.

Hi Carole, I have just finished reading your book, I am so glad I did, there is so much useful information included. I also enjoyed reading about your journey.

I read it within 48 hours and intend to go back through it to put into practice some of the things you have talked about.

Keep up the great work you are doing!

Regards Naomi from the UK :)

Control of values is exemplary and the reductive brush strokes speak of a fine control that the brush size could not produce. Big admiration here.

Thanks for the tip about the podcasts of artist interviews. Will try it tomorrow. I listen to the BBC alot for music and spoken programs. I have been painting everyday since getting your book a couple weeks ago and am having so much fun. Your book is so well written and very helpful.
