Re: Wrapped Fruit WIP

WOW! This is so informative...and very clear in the most visual sense....it really makes you want to try the technique for yourself.... I'm certainly going to rate this one as 5 stars!

Re: Wrapped Fruit WIP

Been away for a couple of days,Had a painting excepted in the Mortimore prize which is a very prestigious prize for realism,so I drove up for the opening.Didn't win anything but It,s all good exposure,and very insperational. Well before I left I managed another layer on the apple just to intensify the colours and put a glaze of yellow ochre on the tablecloth as a base colour .

Re: Wrapped Fruit WIP

Hi, Dennis ~ I've just gotten back into some still life oil now, what with cooler weather coming. Your process and your results are so very informative. Thanks you for taking the time.

Re: Wrapped Fruit WIP

Thanks James and Dan
Thanks Deirdre ,yes I was very previleged to get excepted, there was some magnifecent works in the show.It makes you work alot harder to better yourself and to come up with a better piece for next year.
I've started work on the paper now. scubbling glazes of flake white and alittle lamp black and umber,the paper is baking paper so I,m trying to get that semi transparent look to it .
cheers Dennis

Re: Wrapped Fruit WIP

Dennis,
This is wonderful. Your close-ups of the size of the dabs of paint and the blending is very helpful. As well, noting that there is no risk to contaminating your brush with other colors makes an important point. Congrats on having your painting accepted. We are all looking forward to your posts.

Re: Wrapped Fruit WIP

Thanks for your comment Toine and Dale.
I,ve done some more work on the paper and the fabric and shadow,so all I have left to do is intensify the highlights on the apple and the paper ,and sign it.

cheers Dennis

Re: Wrapped Fruit WIP

Just an advice Dennis (maybe needless, but anyway..):

Always work from light to dark. Lightening things up at the end is really very hard. Darkening is far more easy.

Re: Wrapped Fruit WIP

thanks for your comments,Robert and Charles
Mark: maybe in other techniques but in the flemish technique the lighter colours to the highlights are the last to be applied.
Anyway I,ve applied the highlights to the paper and brightened up the apple, and I think I will over work it if I do anymore to it
So we will call it work complete
Cheers Dennis
