Our weather has suddenly changed from grey and rainy days into explosions of sunshine. Of course it makes me want to go into the fields for plein air painting. But I am restraining myself and keeping to my goal and project for February. Fruit and vegetable practicing in oils. I have had quite a few bloopers, but then there was/is also the successes, however small they may be. And of course, the process. Always the process. I love pushing oils around on the canvas and as it turns out, I even enjoy doing it in still lifes. I love the liveliness of a brush stoke, the vibrancy of contrasting colour, the depth of values, the brilliance of the oils. I love it all.

Such discipline, Ronelle. I would have fled into the sunshine and landscapes. What a noble lady… Love the oils. I think I am most in love with the fennel bulb, though the orange and leaves are a close second. You remember how much I loved your leaves and greens when you were showing watercolor plants.
thank you Annie..hehe, yes I am very proud of my self discipline, not something that comes easilyto me!
I love the textures oil gives..Gorgeous!
Thank you Monique..me too…LOVE oils!
Hi Ronelle. You are well back on track, and keeping to your February goal. Great vibrant pictures.
Thank you Barbara.
