Paintings 19&20

Hello everyone, I hope your week is going well. Below are numbers 19 & 20:

#19 “Tomatoes Study”, oil on birch panel, 4″x4″

In this case, I was able to get the smooth skin and solid orangey-red of the tomato flesh. I am also happy about the bluish-green of the stem.

#20 “Pair”, oil on birch panel, 4″x4″

By the way, the title of this piece is not a typo😊. I guess I had to do a pear at some point. These are Bartlett pears which I’m not fond of eating, but painting them was fine. The bright colour scheme in this one is a departure for me. I like the solidity and the weight of fruit in this piece.

I can’t believe this weekend is going to be Christmas! I’m still behind with the preparations! And I’ve got 10 more paintings to go! I have to tell you, I’ll be relieved when this challenge is over.

Keeping sane,

Jeannette
