This blog serves as a space where I can share the process of my painting journey.........
I laughed out loud when I read that you ate the bananas! Great composition . . . I really love the way they're sitting on the plate.
Yeah, pretty stupid to eat the still life. Unfortunately they are dead center in the space...Thanks, for commenting Linda!
I like this piece. Lovely color combination. I am glad you ate your still life. I too often let my things rot.
Hi Carol, thanks for your comment! I usually let mine go to waste, but, the more I stared at them and under the lights they just looked so good...couldn't resist!
Nice contrast between the splotchy background and the smooth curvature of the 'nanas. I like!
This is great! I think bananas, without exception, are the hardest fruit to paint. I think it's the subtle yellows?
Your colors are lovely! I like the soft pinks in the bananas and the blues in the background. Good fruit is hard to resist .... as I know! :)
I love the colours and textures1 They are your strongest point, Linda! And the composition is perfect!
I especially love all the shades of yellow and the dots showing through the plate. Glad you had a banana feast. My youngest grandson loves them.
Stephanie, Linda, and Jerry, thank you for your comments. I agree with you Stephanie bananas are very difficult for me to paint. I am working on trying to incorporate more color into areas of color...does that make any sense?
Marie, thank you... I love to make marks, colorful one! :)
I'm not convinced that this lovely painting needs anything else! It has the total feel of bananas and how the light is hitting them. I quite like painting bananas...haven't done so in a while so now I might be inspired to try some again.
Karen, it is finished I need to change the text! Thank you for your comment. I bought more bananas and I want to try again...maybe I'll learn to love it!
the subtle values and dotted background really create terrific interest and variety. very nice
Thank you, Mary...I wasn't sure about the background until it just happened. I like it when that kind of thing happens.
Linda, I would not change a thing. I love it and the background is just a perfect contrast in my eyes for the yellow bananas. It looks fresh and not overworked, which I tend to do all the time. Maybe I should start eating my set ups too (as long as they are not bottles or flowers)!
Linda,These bananas are wonderful. Really like that stronger yellow which is the focal point against the softer values and the pinkish color. These have a fresh graphic quality that is really great against the loose fun background.
I really like this . . . the perspectivem the subtle yellows and all you've left unsaid.
