Pear Study

Pear Study
Image Size 6" x 6"
Oil

I had fun with this palette knife painting.  The colors are much more subdued than my usual paintings.  I almost don't recognize it as one of mine.

It was nice to paint with oils again.  I also worked on a couple of oil paintings this week that have been in the works for a long time (3 years for one, 4 for the other).  I hope to finish one of them for next week.     
The other one is quite large and I plan to continue working on it but it will probably take weeks to finish, even if I stick with it.  At least my motivation to paint both of them has returned.

  2. Bonjour chère amie,

    Je suis contente de pouvoir admirer aujourd'hui cette belle poire à l'huile.
    Je vous sens à l'aise aussi en travaillant l'huile. Vous avez plusieurs cordes à votre arc, quel talent !
    Je n'ai jamais osé travailler au couteau. Cela ne doit pas être très aisé et je trouve cette "poire" peinte au couteau magnifique. Votre touche est douce.
    Bravo également pour le merveilleux cheminement de la lumière et des ombres qui font vibrer vos couleurs.


    Gros bisous ♡

    1. Merci Martinealison. Travailler avec un couteau à palette est très amusant et plus facile que ça en al'air. Je la préfère à la brosse lorsque vous travaillez dans les huiles.

  5. Something as simple as a pear can be such a beautiful thing when painted well - this one is so rounded, richly colored and has a nice shine, too.
