Re: The Spotlight - February 2019 - Fruit

Don, thanks for the challenge.
I went for the photo of mprince.
All kind of pastels on PastelMat (30x40 cm)



I did it more loosely and tried to keep it vivid.

C&C always welcome

Kiffin, you version is very clean and the grapes seem to glow.

Kim, lovely sketches, I love especially the last abstracted ones.

Jay, your Adam and Eve pears are well done. Interesting shapes, good values and vivid textures.

Re: The Spotlight - February 2019 - Fruit

Thanks Esther.

I like the way you made the wall behind the still life flair outward. I find it exciting to look at. And I’m fascinated by the grapes. You did keep it vivid. Very nice.

Re: The Spotlight - February 2019 - Fruit

Esther, Very nice! It has a very classic feel to it! Very much like an "old master" still life!

Thank you for taking time and commenting Jay, Karen and Don.
Jay, I am glad that keeping it vivid worked well.
It was interesting to try such a classical motif.

You did a beautiful job with this still life, Esther! I get the same "old master" feel that Don mentioned; very classical and elegant.
