Julian, This is absoutely stunning...perfection! Thanks, Anita
Spectacular Julian! Love your brushwork and color of the plums!
This is exquisite, Julian.
Velvety, deep, mysterious, quietly luscious.
I like how the leading plum,by its leaves,links the two other fruits. A serpentine leave towards the plum on the left and a stiff one towards the third fruit:like two wings spread.Magically,the leave in the center looks like a swan neck,delicately tilted back.A poetic and pulsating still life.
Beautiful as ever, Julian. I like the touch of color on the left plum towards the bottom - very realistic and transparent-looking.
I love the darker tones in this painting. Beautiful!
