Fruit basket

Fruit Basket, watercolor 54 x 42 cm
Have you noticed how the works of other artists make you notice things and scenes that seemed ordinary before. When I looked at this basket on my table, I thought of a painting that Judy did some time ago. Then I noticed the beautiful light and shadow patterns over the checkered tablecloth. And I couldn't resist...
First wash of the painting
I painted this opposite to  the normal watercolor technique - from light to dark. I started with the shadows and then added the light colors.

I remember how intimidated I used to be when painting on a large piece of paper. Now I like it, it makes me feel more inspired and excited.

Inferno, acrylic on canvas board, 30 x 23 cm
And this is just a playful experiment with pouring acrylics over a canvas-board. The result looks like a reflection of the atmosphere at the office in the last year :)

I love the light and patterns of the tablecloth, so beautifully captured, Blaga! Funny that you were inspired by my apples. Interesting that you started with the darks. I hope next year the atmosphere in your office will be less 'firy', but I love the painting!

hi, blaga, i'm typing with both hands from yesterday. I've started to wash a suture line with salt water in a left wrist. A caring publisher helen and sweet mentors say "concentrate on recovery for a while." I'm so blessed to be surrounded by such wonderful people like you! i'm getting better. Kind regards sadami
