Not trying to exact a copy just borrowing a composition and a little of the style .. After Vincent .. 11 x 14 Acrylic On Board Alla Prima .. this is what I do when I want to paint and I don't have anything I want to paint .. I play with other people's works (Dead and Gone People) and see what I can pick up.

Well done Wayne....two of my favourite artists in one painting...lol
just bought (another) Vincent book at the weekend...i think my most favourites are the 'Iris' series...although i love all of his flower paintings...how about Cezanne...my next best..when you have nothing to paint...lol your painting is super....more! more!

Hopefully it's this pc at work but this appears very dark in comparison to the painting. The background is a deep blue green. Is is green on your monitor?

Thank you CAroline and Jan

Caroline .. which Cezanne .. he went in a few directions?

Hi Wayne,
yes your background is green /flecked blue....i like 'Still Life' (Aix-en-Provence)1839-1906 is all the info i have...(in a rush) it's a vase again with fruit...
i fancy giving it a go myself....but any of his fruit/flower paintings are great IMO.must dash...

thank you Caroline, Cedar, Daniel, Chuck, and aszurblue

Daniel .. yes I play with oils and acrylics. I picked up some acrylics a little while ago to get ready for fall paint outs but I'm having so much fun with them it's disgusting. LOL I usually work oils on the weekends and acrylics during the week (time factored in).

Overall the photo has it a little darker than it should be but it's close enough to tell the story.

Later, and thanks again,
