Dark and Different

"Bowl with Apples"
6.25" x 7.5"

I'm still working on this one . . . trying to get the shadows and highlights right and make the cloth and bowl look more believable.  It helps me to take a photo of it and view it on the computer.  I see things I don't see in "real life."  Then I'm able to look at the original and know what more I need to do.  But since I took the photo, I thought I'd post it so you could see what I'm up to.  

This afternoon I'm delivering my "Bittersweet Door" to the New England Watercolor Society Show.  Oh . . . and before I forget . . . I'm giving a watercolor demonstration at the Concord Art Association on April 25th. So if you're in this area I hope you come by. You can click here for more information.  Ok . . . that's all . . . have a good day.

    Exciting about the demo - I didn't realize you are in Massachusetts. (I'm on the North Shore.) I just might have to go check your demo out!!

  4. Kara: I had the opportunity to see the Bittersweet Door at the Attleboro Art Museum. Although there were numerous wonderful pieces on display, I thought your Bittersweet Door was extraordinary. Very reminiscent of the quietude of Andrew Wyeth with simple arrangement and excellent contrast with a vintage New England decor. Exquisite detail in the brush strokes.
