Yes. It has been a busy week, as Paul has described in his posts. Walking, weddings, new friends, eglises, markets, and more wonderful food from Sally, our host at Atelier de la Rose.
And art. Lots of art. I finished the soft pastel sunflower painting I was working on when I did last week’s post.
I had no sooner finished the sunflower, when we went to the market in Fumel and I’ve been experimenting with still life arrangements in between our plein aire outings.
First the still life experiments.
And then the plein aire sketches.
And finally, a mystery:-) Let me know if you think you know what it is:-)
Thanks for taking a look.
Very nice work Jean. I can feel you loosening up in the paintings. Thanks for sharing.
Lovely!! When I look at the mystery – I see a salad being disrupted by a gust of wind.
I detect a few hungry friends here:-)
Thanks to all. I love your guesses. My artist friend Becky Knold made the correct guess on Facebook. It is my acrylic palette after I had wiped it off:-)
And the prize, as far as I am concerned, goes to Eggplants and pepper — pastel study although of course the sunflower is quite a piece. As for the mystery, it really baffles me because it is not in any style of yours I recognize. I am glad to see that you are so productive.
love your sunflower!!!
The pastel study of the eggplant and pepper is magnificent!
The mystery may be fruits and veggies in the blender for a smoothie.
Reminds me of a particularly vibrant goldfish bowl. Lovely! I am enjoying your pastels, knowing ere you got them.
