Only someone with your amazing talent could take a single melon and turn it into such simple, yet elegant, perfection!

Job well done, Julian!



Another great still life by you, really enjoy receiving your emails and it would be a dream come true to be able to join you in a painting class. I'll keep saving, you never know!

What a lovely painting! You're still life paintings are always so soothing to the viewer and I love how you handle your darks... just gorgeous!

Great melon, great tale...that combination cheers us up!

Just a beautiful, beautiful little painting, Julian.


Dear Julian, this Cavaillon melon has weight, texture and wonderful colours. The typical grey green is captured perfectly.
Please,Painter Meister,is there a chance of a painting of said fruit cut open,the colour and the seeds I can imagine would be stunning..... Just a thought.
Enjoy the weekend.
