Daffs in the light


You are producing some admirable work with your restricted palette Marjorie. You certainly have a lovely range of blue/greens. The touches of light and colour are gorgeous.

Brilliant oil pastel work Marjorie. Love the light on the vase and daffs.

Ah thank you Fiona - feeling a bit dissatisfied…too mean to really lay on the pastel! Oh, it’s only money!

Thanks Carole. I bought 5 chunky Sennelier oil pastels to try - nearly £8 each. More for large work really.

Just Beautiful. The lighting is fab. Lovely painting 🖼

Wonderful light.

Lovely and those glass bottles are a delight

Some lovely delicate touches which is no mean feat with oil pastels!

Beautiful Marjorie, love the light catching the glass.

Wonderful, you ‘do’ light so well Marjorie, great still life.

Wow Marjorie this is so good , you really are great at still life paintings . The light on the glass is excellent and you manage the darks so well.

excellent oil pastel.

Lovely pastel work Marjorie. I’m regretting giving mine away now.

I think we can all recognise your work now Marjorie without checking the name underneath. Great colours and reflections but once again the highlights are the highlight, everyone perfectly placed. Beautiful work!

Love that vase and glass, and the flowers are spot on too, delightful.

This is lovely Marjorie, I love the way you always get that light spot on.

Beautiful light as always.

Love the way you've caught the light Marjorie.

So well captured Marjorie, you are the master of light!

Lovely to get all your comments, thank you everyone.

Another fabulous oil pastel, Marjorie.

Ellen and Maureen, thank you.

Love the contrast of lights and darks
