Preparing the jars for pickled onions


It's amazing the amount of sparkle and light you achieve Diana in your paintings.

Thank you Stephen. Thats a great compliment

Fabulous painting Diana. So bright and fresh.

This is absolutely fantastic, the shine from the glass is simply amazing. You are so talented Diana.

Wow, light on glass is so difficult and you have captured it beautifully Diana.

Wonderful painting as ever, Diana, great skill.

Thank you Margaret . Im pleased that you think it looks fresh.

Thanks Paul, The shine is where there is strongest tonal contrast and sharper lines. Thank you very much Robert. Thats a great compliment and much appreciated. Thank you Cesare . Always good to hear from you.

Magic, Diana.

Superb refraction? Crystal clear glass, great painting Diana.

Hello Yoko. Thank you and a Happy new Year to you. Yes Carole, It could well be refraction , though I have to confess to looking the word up.Thank you for your feedback.

Fabulous and so clever Diana.

Always brilliant Diana

Again, such a great painting.

You are a master of reflections and tonal values. The mundane becomes spectacular in your paintings Diana.

Thank you very much Romila. Your comment is very valuable. Ha ha Fred, you're right!! I spent a few hours in there recently. I Actually started a non glass or kitchen painting today

Fantastic ! Just noticed this on your page ... all the contrasts are there; shapes, texture, values . Who but you would make this subject into an eye-catching painting !

Thank you Avril. This was one I enjoyed but I feel it lacks impact somehow

Hang on Studio Wall

Half imp watercolour. I returned to this after what seems like a long break and found it difficult to get into it again. I’ve reached a near completion stage though there are a few areas I’m not sure about. The onions were wonderful!!
