Gosh you tackled so many different surfaces and materials and the shadows are so well done too.

Marjorie your work is beautiful

Thank you Helen and Dennis !

Really good Marjorie. The focal point is just right. I also like the soft way with the oils.

Interesting and well executed study Marjorie.

A pleasing still life Marjorie, such lovely colour and the star if the show the red white and blue jug.

Lots of different shape, angles and textures to get your teeth into here Marjorie, must have been quite a challenge. It's an excellent result and I love the softness of it.

Gudrun, Frank, Carole and Fiona - thanks once again for looking.

I always prefer a random look to objects in a still life - after all one doesn't normally arrange things in your home as a set to paint, so it is a lot more authentic just to paint things where they happen to be. I do like the diversity of objects and the differing shapes and sizes in this super still life, Marjorie.

I like the higgledy piggledy arrangement of objects Marjorie, they make for a more casual and interesting still life. Beautifully painted.

You always manage to capture a softness in your paintings be it still life, landscape etc and this is no exception. Very skillfully done Marjorie.

Must admit I prefer to let others set objects up, I would just paint whatever it there. This is a lovely pieve Marjorie

Thank Val and Derek, Thea and Christine. I enjoyed doing it, painting alongside like minded people is great and we all produced such different work, painting different things.

What an incredible job you did of this, Marjorie! So much to see, but you've managed it beautifully as a whole so that the entire piece flows seamlessly. Well done!

Oil on canvas 20"x16" Went to an oil painting day. Lots of objects were set out, we moved around, selecting our viewpoint, made quick sketches and started. I finished this at home and thoroughly enjoyed it! The difference was, for me, thatI didn't set it up myself and there were so many things to choose from.
