Rose and Thistles - casein



Rose and Thistles; casein on board; 8" x 5"

The backlighting created a new challenge with this piece. The objects lost most of their color while the background became simple color fields. Going back and forth between the two I was able to 'wrap' a bit of light around the stems and leaves. There's a term for this but it escapes me right now.

C&C welcome.

- Mary

Wow. The subtlety of the background is haunting. And again, your unique cropping is delightful.

You have beautiful control of casein. The glass vase is especially nice. Gary

Love the glass vase, like the rose, overall I think you did a very nice bit of work.
Regards,

The glass is outstanding and the rest, while less detailed, is well painted and we can still recognize the subject.

Re: Rose and Thistles - casein

Thank you, Joachim, Bob, Gary, Greg and AbA!

It was so kind of you all to comment

I apologize for being so late here. I've been traveling with my husband (he was in a chess tournament this weekend) and didn't have my WetCanvas password.

It's good to be back. On my doorstep was a box from eBay - a cigar pochade box made by Gary Parks. I'm excited to test drive it - first inside for a still life - and then when I'm out biking.
