Love your work Carol. Welcome to Fresh Painters! The colors in these apple slices are so nice. I love pastels. One day I will try them out. Look forward to following your work!
CAROL, LOVE the delicate grey blue back ground with the lucious light yellow yellow greens etc of the apple slices, blue is tough to get right with food, at least for me, and this is lovely. Jean
Thank you, Carol. I will definitely be following your lovely work as well. You have already touched my heart with your series of cows.
Hello Jean,You're very thoughtful to make these comments. I have painted whole apples, but never just the slices. I found out that what I THOUGHT I saw in terms of color was not necessarily accurate - especially the yellows that were really green and the reds that were really orange. A fun exercise!
Gosh, this is so simple and sooo beautiful! I love the pale greens and blues in the apple slices.
Many thanks, Virginia, for your comments. I have to control my impulses at times - there are so many luscious colors in pastels, and sometimes I have a tendency to use more than is necessary. :)
The colors in this piece are so lovely and harmonious...just beautiful, Carol.Brenda
I appreciate you saying that, Brenda. I really enjoyed doing these apple slices.
This is very nice--like how you did this.
Thank you, Stephanie. I'm always amazed at how the act of painting forces the artist to look very closely at things. Seems like I "discover" details I always took for granted before painting.
