Bargue 56

Did this direct, i.e alla prima which I don't usually do but this one was relatively straightforward and not too large. Not all the shadows are actually that dark but the camera always seem to screw up the contrast issues..

Pear and eggs

A still life I did a while back that was on the shelf drying...and yes the pear was really ripe...although the photo enhances that effect quite a bit

Bargue 55

I'd been lagging on this one, but finally got round to wrapping it up...

I painted this simple still-life with a pointilistic approach but kept the color a little more muted. It definitely makes the camera's work so much harder with all those dots..
