ther is only so much you can do to them without distroying them and starting over again.

Re: Ballerina Tree

It's not so often when after coming across someone else painting, you wanted so much to go back to your own work inspired; wondering how corfublue managed to put that piece together- flawless as a gem and a wonderful sense of color! "Ballerina tree" should be hanged along side Van Gogh's "Sunflowers" and "Irises". It's poetry at it's best!! Please let me know if you intend to have this painting be available in giclee prints.

Re: Ballerina Tree

I'm not a really attracted to flower paintings but there is something about your that holds my attention. I've studied it in order to find out what it was. The technique and brush strokes are good but that's not it. I think it is the colours. You have managed to group a range of colours that give a pleasing sensation. For some reason my eye keeps returnning to the plum table colour on the bottom left hand side. Why this is? I do not know. This is not a criticism but I end up there feeling good. I wish I could be more a colourist with my paintings. I am told colouists are born and it's something you either have or you dont. Thank you for giving me a new way of looking at "flower" paintings

Re: Ballerina Tree

Thanks guys, some of your comments are .......WOW....don't know how to reply to that....but thanks
Lately I have been trying to put my money where my mouth is.
I am trying to get past the subject and look at the paint and it's relationship with shapes.
I have been painting them upside down...and from a distance, and I find that way I am more focused on the harmony of shapes and colour.
As for colour, I am trying to achieve depth with colour rather than detail. And observe light and how it effects saturation.
It forces me to mix more.
i started working in my studio again today....well see how consistant I am.

I am very undecided about that part of the industry...
I just turned 30 so I think I have time to wait and think and watch before I branch away from the main path right now. stay focused....keep it simple....
but It is something that seems to come up more often than not.
I have been keeping records of where the paitnings go in case I need to properly photograph them for such a time.

Re: Ballerina Tree

Hey look at ya Valérie
That is one-a-ya-best painting and it is the best photograph of one of your work !!
Ah R.... is a magician

I like the perspective that sets the viewer above the seen.
It kinda reminds me also of some of Stanley Cosgrove's still lives he did in the '40s & '50s

Beautiful
