Bowl with fruit 6


I tried to push this one visually a little by making the viewer see the bowl from the side, with the top of the bowl in the viewers eye level. I had a blast with those apples.

  1. It looks like you had a good time. I like the way the apples are pressed against the glass. The bowl spilleth over.

    1. Thanks Linda. It has been a real challenge to do all of this transparency, but I have had a lot of fun and learned a lot.

    1. Thanks Jane. It was fun to simplify it and get the small variations in light and shadow.

  4. Des fruits qui tournent et m'entraînent dans leur tourbillon, celui de la couleur...
    La lumière pénètre dans les moindres recoins pour les faire briller semblable aux projecteurs qui mettent en valeur l'artiste sur une scène.
    J'aime le travail de la transparence du verre de votre saladier... Un très bel écrin à vos pommes... pommes d'amour.

    Gros bisous.

    1. Thanks Martine. I am sure I will do more glass in the future, perhaps with flowers in it, but for now I think I do some other subjects.

    1. Thanks art-Traveller. I like to play with color, even though I could and will push it further in the future.

  6. Fabulous. It is your warm/cool, spot-on-values which make this special. I especially love the front green apple's color change where it is touching the glass.

    1. Thanks Julie. I go so much by instinct that I forget to plan values, am glad that my instinct does it for me.

  7. I know this is a little more conventional for you you -- but I really like it. I think the background works especially well with the subject. It doesn't compete, but it remains interesting. And without lots of detail, you really captured the essence of the fruit being IN the bowl -- keeping glass between the fruit and the viewer. Nice work!
