Well Melissa is off to the yoga studio so I finished up the pear painting and have started another Gulf Reflections piece.
14 X 11
As you can see, I've thrown some red into the pears which results in the green popping. This is using complimentary color to achieve the popping of the green.
I always like to put the indication of movement into the foreground of my still life pieces as otherwise they become very static - kind of just sit there!!!! The movement IMHO opinion makes the eyes of the viewer move around and sort of dance over the canvas and to some degree makes the eyes of the viewer go up to the subject matter.
Some detail for my inquisitive ( anal )buddies
