Nothing dull about your work or colors! Lots of movement in your brush work a feast for the eyes. Love your work! :clap:

hey lady, this one is beautiful and feels a tiny bit sad to me, but a good sad. of course, this little blurb has a disclaimer that i sometimes do not have myself as tuned in as i need to be. i so love your work and enjoy watching you change as artist and person;) :angel:

Doing these little 'sketches' is an excellent way to loosen up your brush marks in the larger works. Some very nice movements, in terms of brush marks, on the table. All the colours in the object are strongly echoed in the background, except maybe the yellow. I would bring some of the browns from the table into the yellow flower to even further unite the painting; maybe just a touch is needed.

yep. Thank You!!!
"Just a little sketch?"
If I could do something like this I'd call it a major piece of art!!!
Love the mood of this painting. Thanks for posting it Cindy!

Cindy, I agree with all of the above. I especially like looking at your work and seeing your brush strokes and colours.:clap: :clap:

Nice. Especially like that bit o' purple!
I think the oils are a great medium for you. Of course, all the others that you've worked in have paved the way and you've learned much from doing them, but these recent posts seem to me to be some of your best work.

I appreciate your comments! I agree about the learning value of the different media.
I learned a lot about:
composition and contrast from doing collage;
drawing from oil pastels;
brushwork & color from gouache & acrylics.
And while doing oils, I am learning about light, form and always more about brushwork.
I really strongly recommend collage to anyone interested in studying composition.

This is a wonderful little sketch! I love alla primas like this because they reflect moods simple and pure. I love more complex paintings, too, but the alla primas reach the heart fast - like strong little poems.
