Re: The Gilded Avocado - casein

What a talent you have! You create what at first glance appears to be a "simple" still life. But once a person starts really looking at it he/she finds little treasures everywhere. The ribbon, the ornaments, the pot, and you even throw in a glass bowl the pot sits in!

You are my current inspiration. I bounce back and forth between extreme closeups and normal views trying to learn all the subtleties you have included and how you accomplished them.

While I think I am learning the basic technicalities, I'm not sure I will ever develop the artist's discerning eyes that you clearly have. And there's no way for me to envision the subtleties that lead to your actual brushstrokes. I clearly see the results but I haven't found a way to discern the technique yet. Have you considered doing videos of you painting?

Please keep up the work and the sharing. I really enjoy them and learn from them.

Doug (the NC one)

Re: The Gilded Avocado - casein

You've made my day, Doug - thank you so much for your kind note!

On my blog there are a few in-process photos of this painting:http://mary-klein.blogspot.com/2017/...day-cards.html

I took more in-process photos of my latest painting. I've included that montage (below) as I believe you can see more of the development from start to almost-finished. (The finished piece is also on my blog - titled: Carnations in a Round Glass Bowl.)



Thank you again!
Mary

I agree with Doug. Simplicity but not really so simple! Going to check out your blog as the posted photos are small!
