Now this one is dark and moody. I like it.
Awesome Julian!! Love the blue haze and how the middle plum is tucked in between the other ones!
I can't think of a more appropriate fruit for "wizened old men" to sell than prunes!
A meditation on how light orchestrates the blue and purple colours in plums. I would love to see those wizened men in a painting.
A classic study, understated and brooding. I think this is one of your best yet Julian.
One of your best. Thanks, Julian.
Julian, these are just brilliant! They go way beyond subject into emotional territory... congratulations.
How some subtle juxtapositions of colors create identity,life at all costs and poetry! Miraculous.
