This is really beautiful, Lorraine. Great values if both the fruits, wonderful rich colors. I really like this one!
Great, loose painting style!
Vos fruits sont généreux et donnent envie d'être empoignés. On sent la rondeur et votre poire semblable à un culbuto flirte parfaitement bien avec votre grenade. Les petites touches de bleu apporte ce raffinement qui est loin de me déplaire...Beau contraste avec le fond...Bisous et félicitations. Moi j'aime et vous donne A+++.
Very nice Lorraine, and with the touch of blue. Cerulean? What do you think about the two? Nice titles.
Caladh, I guess I thought I'd done a decent job on the first attempt. It started out so fresh but as I continue to look at it, I see that I was lazy in mixing transitional colors. In an attempt to not blend, I sometimes confuse hard edges with crisp strokes. In the latest version, I think I did a better job with transitional values. In the first post, the pear actually leaned on the pomegranate which was the strong solid fruit. A few days later, they had to lean against each other to stand and the pear took on its share of the balancing act. I was thinking only of color, value and brush work as I painted. I didn't set out to make any social comment but it's in the air here in the US---to me, you can't have society without socialism; I don't mean in a political/ideological sense but in a humanitarian one. If you're not too terribly much younger than I, you know I borrowed the titles from 2 truly great songs. And, it is such a pleasure to have cerulean on my palette again. It's gotten so expensive, it's too bad I can't eat it . . . or feed someone with it . . . :-)
Lovely! Your brush strokes are so deliberate and confident. I love the energy.
Yes, as Linda said, we feel your strongness in your strokes, it's beautiful, Lorraine!Thank you again for your nice comments on my blog.
Your little paintings shimmer with color and light. And I admire your dedication and thoughtfulness toward your art.
We're probably not so different in age. I knew and liked both songs, and used "Lean On Me" for one of my paintings. We all need each other.
Love this title. AND the painting. Really love your style.
