Apples on foil

These are small round apples at got from the market. They are patches are different colors. This picture is somehow not showing the greens in the painting. Hopefully I'll get a better picture tomorrow.

In good health

I loved doing this one because There is a great contrast between the reflective surface of the apple and furry teddy. I love this colorful teddy. It was a big surprise for my daughter when she saw her Teddy 'in' the painting.

Green Cup

I am not good at mixing different greens. Hence these few exercizes. This green cup was X'mas Tree Shop discovery.

All my brushes are geting worn out and it is time to get new ones. I have one W& N Monarch Bright. But after using it I realised it's too short hair and can't hold much paint. Another W & N University Bright no 4 was great and I used it a lot. But at the end it lost the "edge'. They spread at the tip after a while. Right now my dependable faithful friend is Expession no.10 flat shader, a soft watercolor brush. I love to work with it. But I am sure I'll be needing one flat brush very soon. Which brush do you use for small paintings?

Yellow Plums

Yesterday I met an extraordinary woman Terry, who has taught art to kids for over 30 years. She was kind enough to share some of books from her great collection with me. These books are fabulous! They are about technique, art history as well as visual language. I'll try to post the things I learn from these books.

Bonding II

My show yesterday was a great experience. I met so many people and it was so good to hear that they liked my paintings. I think all artists live for moments like these. I was tired but happy when I left.
