I love working with these saturated colors. There is something richly satisfying about laying the groundwork of colors and values, then coming in at the last with highlights that bring everything to life.

Beautiful Don, I love your still lifes as you know. This is so classic with the blue table cloth.

Glad you enjoy it, Kristin--thanks.

Thanks, Rudhi. Hadn't thought of it as a helmet, but turn it upside down and you're right. :^)

Hi Katherine--thanks!

Love this painterly realism. Maybe realistic painterism? Anyway, you're pretty deft with the brush here.
You know what I mean.

*Cherry-helmet*... har har!

Don!

I'm drawn to the all the striped colors reflecting in the pot rather than the cherries themselves!

"Jackdaw Syndrome"--Ha, I love it, Rahina! :^) It's true, shiny things are so much fun to paint, aren't they?

Thanks for the laugh and the kind word.

Don Gray said...

You're right, Dean--the reflections steal the show. I think it's my "Jackdaw Syndrome." :^)
