Eh! Beautiful!

And beautifully interpreted.

great study - full of painterly passion & understanding.

no cool tones?

IMO - prefer this to studies of fruit, eggs & veg.

keep it up best of luck

Well we had a little color problem with the camera it is not as brown as this - the shirt is purple, and I will probably change the photo tomorrow when the sun comes up again! But no its mostly hot - it's my wife - and in an hour and a half one has to have a fairly limited palette.

Where would life be without fruit and veg... or eggs.

Dear Julian,

what a lovely thing to appear on my computer screen! Absolutely gorgeous - and I adore your fruit and veg, so yah boo and sucks to the above.

The contrast between this dramatic, serious portret you painted and your warm beautifull chosen colours. Very special.

I like your eggs, fruits and veggies, quite frankly, and I love this portait - no need for cool colors, she's a hot tamale.



Didnt mean to come across as critical/negative. It's a great achievement that you're building here & BTW, it brings me pleasure to pop by & visit, so thanks.

re-temperature : doesnt matter a dicky bird when you've painted such a fine & passionate portrait...and anyway, arent those hot browns pushing the whites into a cool mode anyway?

best of painting happiness to you.


No offense taken Adam thanks for following and for your involvement - much appreciated.j
