SURROUNDED

6x6 Oil on Ampersand Gessobord

Of course, I had to paint another white cup with persimmons! I painted so many bad white cups that it feels really good to finally feel that I can paint a fairly good one - much improved with all the practice. Painting the same thing over and over does help. To see another artist's practice, on a plastic bowl, click on Jean Townsend's link HERE. She painted her bowl 10 times with commentary on each post. She did a great job. In the meantime, I will continue to work on my cups! :-)

  1. C'est fou comme on peut jouer avec les couleurs pour obtenir un beau blanc. celui de votre pot est particulièrement réussi et j'aime ce petit liseré bleu sur le pot.
    Belle composition.
    Je tenais aussi à vous remercier pour les gentils petits mots laissés sur mon blog en ce qui concerne la naissance de Nathan.

  2. This series of cups with persimmons is wonderful, Linda! I love the way the white of the cup takes all the nuances, also the oranges of the fruits! Painting the same thing over and over makes also see better!

  3. So much to like here, is it crazy that I'm wild about those 3 itty bitty white shapes on the rim of the cup?

  4. Linda--thanks for your comment on my recent painting. I just love these persimmon/white cup still lifes of yours and this one in particular because it has the feeling of a Giorgio Morandi--one of my all time favorite still life painters.

  6. Linda,
    Love this cup with all the persimmons surrounding it. I can see just that perfect hint of soft orangey peach in the right side of the cup to reflect those sweet persimmons. Can't wait to paint some myself! Not sure I am ready for white cups but it has been fun to see you paint them so well!

  11. Linda, what a wonderful painting! The cup is a masterpiece and I love the contrast of the hard edges on the cup with the soft edges and color on the persimmons.

  14. Linda, your cup is wonderful, the mix of warm and cools on the surface of the cup really makes it sparkle. The persimmons are luscious too, you have a great way of handling paint. A great painting!!

  16. These are so striking! Practicing one thing for a long time really works--I did that with trees a while back and am so comfortable now with what used to trip me up. I think you've got this!

  17. Nicely painted, Linda. Those doggone elipses can be really challenging, I know. Add to that the fact that some cup rims simply are not even and it's even more difficult to make them look right!
