More fun with the forelle pears and pansies. This is painted on an 8 x 10" linen panel.
I have painted so much lately that my hands hurt. I squeeze paint out of my brush with a paper towel held in my left hand and that joint is worn out. A habit that I am going to have to find a substitute for if I want to keep painting.
The Mt Brook Holiday show starts today so come on out if you can. Details in earlier posts.
Beautiful! The color combinations are perfect. Well done! Good luck with your show!ReplyDelete
A jewel! Love the loose stroke of light on the left pansy and all the rich colors against your grays.ReplyDelete
I love how the blue pansies really give life to this painting, amazing colors, really like it.ReplyDelete
Another beautiful painting, Carol. I have the same problem with my left hand/arm. Don't know of a good alternative yet. Let me know if you find one!ReplyDelete
The pears are perfect, Carol. Wish I had a clue to help with the hand/wrist but I ache all over all of the time and haven't found anything yet.ReplyDelete
This painting is really lovely in both color and technique, Carol.ReplyDelete
I have two suggestions. I lay out an old, thick rag and swipe my brush across it several times. For a complete color change I swish my brush in my Gamsol in-between. You do have to keep moving the cloth around but it should be better than painful hands. I buy old terry towels from Goodwill. I also find the shop towels from Home depot to be absorbent, but cost more.
A brush for each color is another way.
And another one is to start using a palette knife.
Carol I love the color combo on this painting. It doesn't hurt that purple is my favorite color. Such a nice composition too. I do the a color on each brush idea that Julie mentioned above. I know habits are hard to chance but you just have to keep painting! You are too good.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous color combo and subject Carol!ReplyDelete
Really charming, Carol. Love the light/dark in the left pansy with the bright color on the pears in the same area.ReplyDelete
Hope your arm/hand is feeling better.......asprin!!
