Love this pear and your almost cubist approach to painting it...and I've heard thalo described as the "bad boy" of color...you kept the bad boy under control beautifully!
Well done jeff, not only for the painting but also putting thoseteachers who want to restrictexperimenting in good and lovely colour in their place. keep going Jeff. All the best.Vic.
"drunken uncle thalo" That's a good laugh for a Wednesday morning, thanks!!
three cheers for you-I, too, love the thalos...and your painting.
great post! great painting!
I love this painting!
Hey,Love your paintings. I've just started to get back into painting after abandoning it for a few years, it was just to frustrating and painful...I saw your post about the love/hate relationship with painting, I know how that feels. Anyway, thanks for the inspiration."Hell, If I could get an even more a more power color, I would."Have you tried Cennini paint from http://store.studioproducts.com/Paints-p-1-c-257.html They make magnificent paint.Eugene
bravo bravo, clap clap clap, on both the painting and your words. I get upset when I hear someone spout off that certain colors shouldn't be used too!
Well said, Darth, well said!Hey, we're artists ... we can do what we want, right?
Thanks for using these colors. I agree the world is in living color and we should express that. Power to the Color.
Man, you must go through a lot of fruit at your house...
So funny! The drunken Uncle. I love Thalo Blue and have always used it and always I hear people repeating the myth that 'You can't use thalo blue. It gets into everything.' Well, you can't make bright greens without it as you point out. That pear is awesome. Like the brushwork, too.
Man, keep going! Those thalos just keep the synapses firing and set-off a great vibration against the ultramarine.
"Drunken uncle Thalo"--hahahahah, that's great. Nice one!
I heard that somewhere about the Phthalo colors. I use them all. The rule about nature and phtalo is bogus in my opinion. Check out a bluecrab sometime, if those colors are not phthalo then they are darn close. Your brush strokes and colors are spectacular.
Your pear inspires me. I too am trying to paint "loose" and it does take loads of practice. Use whatever colour makes your world light up, is what I say!
