Still Life

I have never liked still life and it was a bit of a battle to get to grips with painting it, but it helps if you really love what you are painting. My boots were like that, and now this old kettle just took my fancy. I call this "Kitchen Art" A row of these could look really great in a kitchen.

Hi Carol:
Your paintings are so dreamy!!!!
I have to learn:
how to respond to my blogs
how to put pictures on my blogs
and how to put links on my blog
Painting I can do - it's all the tech stuff that confuses me - even tho I built my own website!!!
With the Cadmium red medium and dark - they mix badly with other colors so that you get a bruised and muddied look. Cadmium Red Light, on the other hand is a bright clean color that adds brilliance to another color. I generally but the cheapest brands - Winsor/Newton. :) _ Kathy

Thanks Kathy
Obviously the local Zelcol Cadmium must be the light because it mixed beautifully!

The Courtyard

The Courtyard Hotel was the venue for our painting out in the open for a while. The painting of Deveils Peak was painted at the same location. I need more practice with buildings! We are painting in the Company Gardens at the moment and I am getting lots of practice in. Strange how the window is not centred in this building, but that is the way it is.
