Soft Focus Plums
(24" x 24", oil on canvas)
The dusty reds and blues of these plums called for some softer brushwork. My usual bright white cloth may have overwhelmed the more delicate colouring, so I opted for a subdued cloth. The grid of folds in the cloth serves to break up the space and is a nice contrast to the organic lines of the stem.
It has been a few weeks since my last post and I apologize. There is a nasty cold bug floating around and both my husband and I caught it. I hope to be back to normal within a week or so.
