"Bottoms Up"


I have many things to post for I have been painting a bit lately. The difficult task of setting up a still life is still haunting me most every day. I don't want to copy what someone else has done, but still be fresh in my approach to my subjects. I've tried to think of my palette first, then pull from my surroundings items that help me to realize my colors. I want to tackle folds in fabric more....a lot more, but some days I'm reluctant. Lazy? You betcha! Folds are very difficult for me, but that only means practice, practice.

I have that same problem myself Kathryn, trying to approach things in a new way, a way that is mine alone, but sometimes you just have to go with what your heart tells you is best and never mind what anyone else has done or is doing. Besides we learn from each other and that I think is what art is all about! Have a great day of painting.

You are really tackling those folds beautifully!

This is very nice. You did great with the folds. I like the hints of purple that contrast with the pears.
