Fruit

This was painted with a lot of my leftover paints (scraped into a pile of gray)..this time my all leftover paints made more of a dark brown than a gray.

I don't know Celeste. I enlarged the image and think it came out great. No mud here.
Great job.

Hey Gary --"dark brown" is not necessarily a derogatory term. lol. I didn't mean anything negative about it, I just notice that the scraped up pile of paint sometimes comes out to lean either warm or cool. Thanks for your comment!

Beautiful and timeless, Celeste! Love the deep colors you have here too.

Those blues and oranges pop so nicely on top of those neutral "scrapings". Gorgeous.

OK Celeste I always knew you were both a wonderful person and a great artist but a magician I did not know you were that also. Where did you buy all that beautiful rubbish paint. I wish

Just goes to show that you can paint masterfully no matter what the paint or subject. Beautiful!!

I have done this before and got nice results. I amost think I should just throw it all together right from the start of any painting. Nice job.

Those are some fresh-looking leftovers. Makes me impatient for stone fruits.

I love the colors! Very loose and impessionistic. Very creative use of materials too!

Absolutely beautiful!

Linda said...

Leftover paint? Maybe that contributes to the color harmony you captured. It's very beautiful and I am impressed you did it with your scrapings!

It is obvious that with you there is no leftover paint. This painting came out beautifuly. I like thew way Martine Alison said it, even though I don't speak French and don't understand her. This is because the picture just seems to merit French.

Honestly, Celeste, I can't keep up with you. I have just played catchup in the last several posts and it is all great. You are an inspiration!
