These are beautiful studies. And so small panels. I often read your blog and it is such an inspiration to me. I like to see how your paintings are done and what colors you use, the way you paint it. I learn a lot of it. Thanks for showing.
Wow! What a difference your hard work on extended pieces has made, eh? (Canadians like to say "eh?").I remember how you struggled with some small studies at the beginning of your blog, and now you just kick their ass. That onion is so beautiful.
Ohh these are all very nice, but I have to agree, the onion... makes me cry. Well no not really, but it is beautiful. Nice work!
These are brilliant and really capture the lighting and texture quite well -- especially the onion (my fave)!
Thank you everyone for all your comments! I did have fun, it was quite a change of pace (literally!). I could have painted that onion over and over, but it started to wilt and get "floppy". I might have to try to sprout another on purpose :)Funny thing, even though the paintings were quick and comparatively simple subjects (compared to crumpled transparent things!), they were not at all easy to paint. I was surprised, I think I thought with a certain amount of training & practice I'd be able to whip out small/simple paintings more easily. But that wasn't the case. The practice has made my perception sharper but painting even simple things is still very challenging.
wonderful studies Sadie. there is such an energetic light about all three, r.
