Bowl with fruit 4


 Just so you are up to date. I started this one after I started on a very traditional composition with harmony, bowl in the middle of the canvas and I felt very strongly about it, but at the same time I was bored already. I usually avoid those compositions, but at the same time I know that it isn't what you paint, it is how you paint it.
I just let go with this one. I had taken this reference photo of a bowl with a slightly off-balance composition, but I liked it, so I gave it a go. I finished the other one too, but since I finished this one first, it got the number "4".

  1. I like this Roger. A lot. It's colorful. It's energetic. It's alive. The red apple against the green pears is spectacular. Your expanded palette is spectacular. This is a beauty.

    1. Thanks Linda. This one was fun to do. I got bored with "Bowl with fruit 5", and just let go. I did for example the bananas in 5 minutes, just a few brush strokes, and I just left it rough.

  2. Une merveilleuse composition... Le travail de transparence de votre saladier est superbe. Je pense que je vais me transformer en Belle au bois dormant et croquer cette fameuse pomme rouge!
    Tout est raffinement et délicat... l'ombre de votre pomme verte est magnifique. Un swing parfait de lumière et d'ombre le tout dans un tourbillon de couleurs.

    Gros bisous.

    1. Thanks Martine. Glass is something I have started to explore. So far I have tried to interpret frosted and structured glass, will try clear glass soon.

    1. Thanks Julie. It is a balance, but as long as I do it my way, I think I can do more traditional still life. I get easily bored in the beginning, but when I get into it, it is a lot of fun. The next one is so far my favorite.
