This is really really soooooooo lovely.. The light here is just perfect. The composition is winner. It is a pleasure to watch this.

Wow Kathy, it is hard to believe that this is in watercolors: it is so solid, so beautiful, so almost oily.
I love the dark background. Reminds me old Netherlands Art School.

Thank you,
Irina

I am scared of using so much darks in my watercolour. But you have balanced it so well.
nice one !
what fruits/flowers are these ?

Kathy said...

Prabal...you are SOOOO kind. I am happy with this one and may put it in my kitchen until I put it in a show or something...

Irina..yes, sometimes we just have to make them more solid. It depends on the subject. I would love to paint in oils but my love is in watercolor.

pc...one of my favorite sayings that I always tell my students is..."Don't be afraid of the dark" you can really pull a painting together by adding these rich darks. I try to get a dark established as soon as I can in a painting so that I can key the painting to it.
These are gords and some made up flowers. I did not use any masking fluid nor did I use any white or opaque paint. I painted around the flowers. It was a challenge, but it was fun.

Thanks to all of you!!!

Hi, Kathy, I suppose the fall harvest is something related with the celebration of thanksgiving. But in any case, this painting doesn't looks like a snowed landscape. It isn't time yet?. MPDR. I love the background and its colors and I keep watching your watercolors in spite of I don't put any comment, dear friend.

Thanks so much arti...I always say...don't be afraid of the dark :)

Jullian...you come out in the dark...MPDR. Glad to see you again. Thanksgiving is just around the corner, then Christmas :) But people are beginning to get ready for Christmas now...even the stores.
I am working on the snow scenes already and you will be seeing those too. Then I will throw a snow ball at you to wake you up. You need to get on FB. There are so many great artists there and I am always posting new painting on it. Thanks for stopping by :)
