I had purchased many pears last week for the still life with the Indian tea pot, so I thought I use one of these today for a small alla prima painting.  I'm loving painting those pears! Now I need to try and think of something to paint for tomorrow . . .

Indian Teapot with Fruit Daily Painting


Teapot with Fruit
8 x 10 Oil

I painted this little gem today with the low light coming in from the window.  I felt this light was the best choice due to the teapot.  It's handmade in India, dented and crooked, and has a very low sheen.  I'm not sure what it's made of but it's not shiny like a polished silver.  I kept all of the lighting throughout the objects very low and soft to complement the pot.  The bosc pears and apple made an appearance again.  What it is that I love to paint about these fruits so much? I really have no idea.  I just love painting these.  The bosc pears are my favourite to paint in all the pear varieties.  It must be the varying colours that come with them, from tinges of green at times, to deep golds and browns.  They're just as delicious to paint as they are to eat.

This is now up on eBay for a very low starting bid.  Have a great night!

Blue Bottle Alla Prima Still Life


Blue Bottle & Fruit

This blue vase caught my eye a while back while browsing in a store and I knew it had to come home with me.  It's been waiting to be painted for a while now, and I'm so happy I finally got around to using it in combination with fruits that were in the kitchen.  This painting was painted alla prima, in one sitting.  It's now up on eBay if you're interested, and there are close up shots there as well. Thanks for looking!

Bag of Pears Painting of the Day

As is often the situation, I woke up this morning not knowing what I would paint.  This is the result.  I enjoy painting these bags of fruit and am actually working on a larger piece on linen.  It's a slight variation from these fruit bag paintings, meaning I don't paint the same thing twice.  I'm looking forward to its completion so I can post it, but in the mean time, if you like this once you can click here to bid on Ebay. Starting bid is only $25.00!
