Copper Kettle / Study

Color! The richness and variety of the orange in the kettle, fabric and flowers are complimented by the blue green of the foliage. To my eye this is irresistible!

Every March, I paint the magnolias budding out on the young tree in my yard , and every year it's an amazing challenge. Such delicate beauty.

Oranges and Lemons

This watercolor is my version of a 17th century Flemish still life  by Justus van Huysum. I have been intrigued by this oil painting for a long time , and decided to try my version. In the original, the color has dimmed, probably due to the varnish , and there are no visible brushmarks . This, on the other hand, has strong color and the marks show, because of different pigments and process.
Fascinating !
