Not a lot of color but small differences and the different textures are fascinating for something as ordinary as a white mushroom. Yum!

Great job, velvety mushrooms

Wow! You knocked this out of the ball park! This was not an easy subject and you did a fabulous job in capturing the texture of these mushrooms with a limited palette. Congrats!

You managed to give them a "mushroomy" glow.

Oh. My. God!

When this first appeared on my screen, I couldn't believe my eyes. How you pulled this off, I'll never know .... a few mushrooms, a very limited palette, the beautiful shadows, the tiny pieces of the mushroom caps ... so, so difficult yet you've really scored with this!

I've often laughed at the expression .. "I'm in awe .." and yet, this is how I feel looking at this exquisite painting. I can't stop looking at it, Julian!

What's interesting is that most of your landscapes lately have been very loose but this is tighter (if I can use that word) but not overly tight - how the heck do you manage to do both? I love the blues on the shelf/table and in the mushrooms. This has to be one of my all-time favorites!

The pink highlight is perfection!

Beautiful. I love it, the different hues, the placement, everything. A joy to behold.🙂

Well done, Julian!

Stunning. I actually felt my heart quicken when seeing these incredible monochrome mushrooms. The textures and colours, especially around the gill edges are so well rendered.

Just Lovely. One of your best.

So well done!! I know exactly what those mushrooms feel like!!

Ghostly!

Perfect!

Really, really nice!

Really nice job considering the lack of color. I'm a huge fan of your work, and always love seeing how you meet each new still life (or landscape) challenge.

Just a brilliant painting, those mushroom colors.

A perfect rendition of mushrooms! Absolutely perfect. Your painting is amazing.

The feeling of volume is fantastic!

Hi Julian this is beautiful in it's simplicity. Who would believe mushrooms could become such a complex inspiring work of art. I love all the comments , they must be very gratifying and well they should for this is masterful!

Thanks Craig

Exquisite.
