I have been painting mostly from photos lately and have not had time to get back to one of my first loves, still life. It is hard to fit it in sometimes. I set up my still lifes so that I can have practice painting from real life. These apples asked me to paint them so I found some complimentary things to go with them.
I am enjoying using the limited palette that I practiced at Nancy Franke's workshop. This is painted on an 8 x 10" linen panel.sold
This is gorgeous, Carol! I hope you do more still life paintings. I love the colors and beautiful brush work on the apples! Nice work.ReplyDelete
I have to agree with Hilda. The palette and composition, so country fresh and beautiful!ReplyDelete
Love this Carol! Beautiful grays in the background too!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Carol, for your insights and information about what you learned in Nancy Franke's workshop. I'm hoping to take one in March. I like her for the same reasons you do. Your paintings are very beautiful, too, that is what led me to your blog. I was admiring your work on DPW. I'll put a link to your blog on my blog, hope that is okay.ReplyDelete
Thanks carol! I will check out your work too. Have fun with Nancy!ReplyDelete
