The light it's very nice, a great atmosphere i admire you. You know
Thanks, Laura.The light in this particular studio is really blah to atrocious, so I go a little wild imagining lighting.
I love your paintings Jean, one after the other. You paint women sad--and I think overall most of us are. You have a color sense that always startles me with it originality when I open to your site. You do very fine work.
You are SO talented!! Shalom! Today is the International Day of Peace (9/21/12) May you and all countries know and enjoy peace.
Beautiful palette! The background on this one also suggests a greater context, which of course draws me into a story. Love it.
Stunning! I love this.
This is lovely.
I don't think I have the right vocabulary to say what I mean, but I really like your use of scale here. We want to look at her head, because, of course, it is her head, but I really like how our eyes have no choice but to move down the portrait because of the weightiness of her beautiful hips and legs. The way it plays with proportion reminds me a bit of Modigliani.
Very beautiful! I love the creative colors and the gold against the blue.
This made me realize how often its your use of color that's unusual and compelling. I see some other visitors are seeing the same thing. The red here is just amazing. The shape is graceful, beautiful, and, yes, sad, but without your vibrant colors, all that would have much less impact. I could get carried away about this one--the irony of using red to portray grace and sadness, and so forth. So I'll shut up now.
Love this lady in the blue, gorgeous painting !
Thanks, Linda.I do paint a lot of non-smiling women.
Kate, thanks and shalom! Peace to us all.
Thanks, minn.Because I was at a far corner, I got to see some of the structure of the room, not just a cloth backdrop.
Thanks, Pamo.There is something so graceful about a back.
Thanks, Margaret.You are right-on. This was about elongating her bottom half, exaggerating it and giving it much more weight and importance.
Thanks, Dan.There can be something so dreamy about pastels.
Thanks, Banjo.I keep a very limited palette and let the colors blend somewhat to give additional hues.
Thanks Jane. I love it, too.
Thanks, Susan.The paper here, sanded, helps a lot to make the pastels glow a bit.
