The Blue Apples

Pleased you should be Joanne. I think these days with your gained experience you would have used stronger tones. Good anyway

I like the colour harmony but agree with Dennis on the tones.

Your palette here is fabulous Joanne.

Thankyou Derek and John for your comments, and the advice! The colours in the original are a bit stronger, but also this was probably the first still life I'd drawn since college, ( except maybe a few pencil sketches here and there!), and i found it quite a challenge! I'm used to trying to capture the emotion and expressions of what i draw, which of course i couldn't here, and maybe that reflects in the result?

nicely drawn Joanne tight control with colour harmony

I particularly like the small bowl Joanne and the way you have portrayed the cloth underneath.

Beautiful work Joanne lovely still life

Thankyou so much for your comments David, Adele and Dennis.

I would be very pleased with it as its a lovely piece of work

Many thanks Dermot

Hang on Studio Wall

A few years back I felt like trying a different subject matter to my usual portraits and animals, and so set up this simple still life. This pastel drawing was the result, and i still can't decide if I'm pleased with it or not!
