"Nectarine Reflection"




















10 x 10" oil on canvas panel SOLD

I've been wanting to paint this dark brown cup for
the longest time and finally found the fabric to go
with it.

You know how I am about food props. This nectarine
barely had time to touch the ground before I gobbled
it up!

Un superbe travail... Que ce soit celui de votre nappe, de votre fourchette, de votre fruit ou celui de cette tasse sublime... Rien à dire! Si, toutefois ! Waouhou!
Votre fruit qui se mire dans la tasse... bravo!
Gros bisous

Wonderful painting!!!

Gorgeous dark brown cup with the best reflections! Love the nectarine against the fabric and yes, it is just perfect. Always love a fork- great line against all the other shapes and they are so fun to paint!

SO...SO...Beautifully painted, Gwen.
I love how you added the color of the nectarine in this lovely tablecloth....and that beautiful reflection of the fork in this cup!!! Perfect!

Carol Blackburn said...

Looks warm and inviting, Gwen. Beautiful!

Susan E. Roden said...

Truly a Master of Patterns Gwen! And the subtle reflections of the nectarine and fork are excellently executed.

Sonya Johnson said...

Beautiful job on this, Gwen! The cup, its reflections, and the nectarine are so perfectly rendered, and the fabric you chose just pulls all those elements and colors together perfectly.

Definitely one of my favorites by you :).

Gwen, How the heck did you figure that color scheme out. Whoa, beautiful. The cup looks purple to me, just right with the yellow of the nectarine, with the red/green background. Wow, it all comes together...not to mention the quality of the painting technique. Bravo.

Robin Kent said...

Like the reflections -of course of the fork. And particularly like the subtle one from the fruit on the opposite side.

Julie Hill said...

Once again Gwen, well done. You handled that color palette so well.

Diana Marshall said...

The fabric is a perfect foil for the dark coloured mug, another winner!

Giselle McMenamin said...

Love the way the peaches almost get lost in the pattern of the tablecloth but not completely. It's the perfect balance. Not an easy task! Well done.

Kelley Carey MacDonald said...

Oh, these colors are DELICIOUS! Beautiful work on the pattern, the reflections... as usual!

Virginia Floyd said...

So, so beautiful. The reflections on the sides of the cup are amazing. I love the clear bright colors of the nectarine against against the more muted colors in the cloth. Great job!

It does go with the fabric and the peach. Beautiful piece.
