Fruit Bowl

My first still life. Thanks, Paul Alie, for setting this up and sharing your artistic guidance. I began to see how light makes all the difference.

I had an opportunity to experiment with adding a background to my painting. Which do you like best?


About mehrlich125

Since I was little I liked to visualize and create things. Painting with watercolors is what makes me happy now. That, and spending time gardening and reading. I love long walks, biking, and the beach. Cape Cod is where I spend a lot of my leisure time.

    The one with the dark background is so much more interesting and important! How did you like painting such a dark color? How is the ‘barn’ coming along?
    Tomorrow is camelia day for me….ought to be a hoot.

      Hi Joyce, thanks for your feedback! The dark color does add drama to the picture. I like adding darks, it helps to balance things out. I left the barn picture for awhile to try some pen & ink w watercolors. Good luck with the camelia! LMK how it goes. M.
