Julian,you share with us here the sinuous tracks of your dexterity.And it works like a charm!
Just lovely, Julian. I am noticing more texture in paintings of late. Or something a bit different. Whatever, I love it.
Julian is in love...with Louis. It is shining through the paintings...soft and tender. I love the heirloom roses...a friend brought me a stunning bouquet of Gertrude Jekyll roses last week and I reveled in their sweetness the whole week.
Fantin Latour also loved roses - he would be proud of these.
beautiful,wonderful colors! Wish I had painted the roses. Love your work. look forward to the next jewel. marilyn Poliquin
This one has a very impressionistic style to it yet the dark background is more in the realistic style. A great fusion. It shimmers.
Manet would love these roses as well as Fantin Latour. The clear simple vase, strong lighting, dark background reminds me of Manet's last flower paintings. Very lovely.
Beautiful roses !
Just pure beauty and poetry in this painting. I always look forward to seeing your paintings. Thank you for bringing to the world such love through your paintings.
Awesome work.
What a fantastic play of light. Very impressive! Tanja
just perfect, Julian. its the light and the gray verses the color. i love it so much. sent from Maui.
