Three Grapes and a Tangerine

Continuing on my series of 6 x 6 oil paintings on gallery wrapped canvas. I have to admit I do love the redness of the tangelo against the teal/greenish background.

    1. Thank you, Heidi….I usually don’t think out my composition; it just happened and then I work with it. I wondered how many artists actually do planned out their composition before they work? Or is it all by instinct.

      1. Interesting thought. I do think the most successful ones are carefully planned. Maybe a person who has done a large number of planned still lives is able to do it by instinct. Or then, maybe if you’ve studied other artists’ still lives to the extent that you have a “setup library” in your head. Personally I think the setup is harder than the painting, cause I never had much training in it πŸ™‚

      2. Before I took Qiang Huang’s workshop, I threw things together and rearranged if I felt too. But Qiang pointed out the importance of setting up our still life carefully. So my goals with all my still lifes is to work on staging carefully.
