SHALLOTS

6x6 Oil on Ampersand Gessobord

Shallots from Central Market ended up in my still life today. I may paint them again as it was fun to try to capture the values, colors and the modeling. Not perfect, but I am pleased with the outcome, so I may try it again. Painting is such a joy!

  2. Ah ah ! des échalotes!! Je souris car je viens de faire 1300 kilomètres avec un sac de 15 kg d'échalotes de Plouescat dans ma voiture. Ce sont en France les meilleures du pays elles ont le label A.O.C. (appellation d'origine contrôlée).
    Elles ont parfumées toute ma voiture et je suis certaine que je devais sentir l'échalote aussi !!
    Cependant c'est tellement bon, n'est-ce pas ?
    Les vôtres aussi sont belles et ont ses cuisses rondes qu'on leur connaît avec des teintes chaudes et dorées. Vous avez placé à la perfection la lumière qui leur apporte la noblesse qu'ont cette variété de bulbes.
    Je vous attribue l'A.O.C. pour cette dernière peinture.
    Bises

  8. This is very strong painting and I love the largeness of the scale, especially since it's a small painting.

  9. Linda, there's something very fabulous about the strip of off white across the bottom and the dark/dense background-- Your textures and highlites look amazing here. Nice job!
