Love it, just wish my paintings led me in the same directions as yours do!
Glad you listened! This is wonderful!

très beau travail..les couleurs sont subtiles!
Good you decided to follow the painting and to forget about plans, it has an incredible glow to it, really shining...how do you do it, is there some trick you could reveal??
Thanks everybody for your comments! Jane . . . not a trick. It's a matter of graying down some colors so other brighter (usually complementary) colors next to them can pop. When I worked from imagination, color was my main concern so having that intention was something to work towards. Working from life has made that more difficult because I often get distracted by the literal aspects of what I see and forget to work the color. If you have soft pastels and a few different sheets of colored pastel paper, it's an easy way to experiment---you can see with the first stroke which chalks resonate against the colored ground. As a watercolorist, you are always painting on white but with some experimenting, it should translate to your medium too.
Lorraine thank you for taking your time to explain, I will check out the link , too.
Lorraine just keep on listening to those intentions! I love this painting. The whole thing is gorgeous but the cup is an absolute killer! The reflections are so well done and the grays really set off the fruit. You're inspiring me big time!
