"Blue Pot and Pear"
11"x14" oil on linen canvas panel
This is the final piece I did at Nancy Franke's workshop. Our focus this time was to work on making the pot look rounded by using colors and values. I used that artistic license again and replaced the orange that was in the setup with a pear. Because of the workshop setting and the fact that four artists were painting the same setup, the orange appeared right in the middle of the pot from my angle, so I just deleted it and put a pear in the setup in a more eye pleasing position. I also worked on keeping the background light and loose.
I am on my way to Arizona for a plein air workshop with Jennifer McChristian. I am so excited and feel very blessed to be able to study with such a talented artist and travel with my good friend, Judy Nocifora. I will try to post photos during the workshop!
