Friday at Studio 30

I got sort of a delayed start during the model session today.... This is as far as I got when time was suddenly up!  The time just flew by.  I'll just leave it here and consider it a good oil sketch.

In the morning I painted in the still life session. I worked on this painting that I started weeks ago. Someone added some new fruit to the set up, (which seemed an improvement), so I made those changes. I may work on this again next time.

To see all the paintings from today...go HERE.

Happy Weekend!

Ma chère Céleste,
Je suis certaine qu'après avoir admiré votre nature morte (qui ne l'est pas tant que ça!!), je me sens prête à affronter une nouvelle journée... Je crois avoir le plein de vitamines nécessaires !...
Vos couleurs sont ensorceleuses et jouent agréablement ensemble. Une très belle oeuvre.
La première peinture est d'une grande délicatesse et de grâce. Elle me procure des émotions à la limite d'une mélodie...
Du bon travail comme toujours.

Gros bisous et bon week-end.

I have to say that this fruit still life is one of the few times that I'm really over the moon about a fruit painting! It is just truly stunning, Celeste. Please don't paint over this one! Or if you find you want to sell it...you know who to call first!

Martine Celeste
I'm sure after admiring your still life I feel ready to face a new day ... I think I have plenty of vitamins needed! ...
Your colors are bewitching and play nicely together. A beautiful work.
The first painting is of great delicacy and grace. She brings emotions to the limit of a melody ...
Good work as always.

Kisses and good weekend.

(Thanks, Martine!)

It is a lovely portrait sketch as you call it. You can always work on it further in your own time. And please finish off this lovely still life work. Some one may add another fruit to the set up !

I really like this portrait, whether it is finished or not. And your still life is absolutely wonderful!

I like how you paint figures, still life and landscape. For myself I have not been able to muster that type of devotion. This still life seems done to me. What else would you do to it?

Za was just talking about how much she liked your portrait last night. We both agreed, add a bit of the fur she was wearing and it's DONE. Your still life is amazing! Love how you've stuck with it and brought it to this extraordinary place. It just vibrates.
