I love the volume that you accomplished with the visual texture.
Dear Mayra, Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such a lovely compliment. It is truly appreciated.All the best to you, Joan
Good Morning Joan!... This is a fine oil.... well composed with wonderfully warm light... well placed upon upright shrubbery which catches more of it! Your treatment of the pumpkins demonstrates your attention to detail... but not so it dominates. Your treatment of the foreground area as a combination of color...shapes and shadows really anchors that very important area of any painting!A splendid oil Joan! That pochade box... is kickin' _ _ _!!! HA HA!!Good Painting!Warmest regards,Bruce
Hi Bruce, Thank you Bruce, I love when your observation is validation of what I was trying to accomplish. Your encouragement is truly appreciated. As for the pochade box, it is kickin' and I just got my Keven MacPherson pochade yesterday. Just finished putting linseed oil on the extended palette and the work area inside the box, recommended by the company. How about yours, did you get it, can't wait to see you using your new equipment.Have a great weekend, All the best to you, Joan
Hi my friend.I agree with Bruce above, the Pumpkins not dominating the rest, brilliant painting Joan, and absolutely well painted. Oils eh? great. All the best Joan.Vic.
Hello my friend, Thank you for seeing the same thing as Bruce, I didn't want the pumpkins to dominate, when the seen itself was so lovely. Yes Vic, I have been using oils lately, just love switching back and forth, the acrylics and gouache, oils, it's all great fun and challenging at the same time. For the longest time I thought your acrylic paintings were actually oils. Not an easy thing to accomplish. So that being said, it is time to cook dinner, then Mike and I are off to the art reception. All the best to you, Joan
I'm in such a spin ... I have so much going on that I nearly missed this post! Glad I didn't it's a beautiful painting ... what a joy!I've got some stuff on FAA, but I'm not utilising the set up properly yet.... and I'm trying to make a four-poster bed at the same time (chuckle) ... I do love my crazy world though :0)Have a nice weekend!
Hi John, Oh thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to comment on my blog. As for the FAA, me too John, not to worry. I do everything in such haste, you know like, leaping before I jump. There is still so much that has to be done, like re-pricing for prints and originals. Lots of work ahead.You say, you are making a four poster bed, Wow!! you certainly are multi-talented. Looking forward to seeing the completion. So now it is time to make dinner. You have a great weekend.Thanks again John, All the bestJoan
What I meant to say is not looking before I leap.
What a great painting - I love it. It just breathes autumn and crisp frsh air - I love it! And much luck with your show!
