Raspberry Jelly 2 - SOLD

"Raspberry Jelly 2"

8"x 6" Oil on gessoed board.

sold

My goal on this painting was to use contemporary fresh color and to render the subject realistically while using interesting brushwork and keeping it loose. I hope you enjoy the WIP shots. Thanks for visiting.

Marilyn, this is such a great painting! You've more than mastered your goals. I have a hankering for raspberry jam now...

Thanks so much for showing the 'in process' shots. We learn alot from those. Lovely work!

Debbie said...

You did a wonderful job on this challenging subject, the transparent glass, the writing on the glass, the threads on the mouth of the jar...etc..etc... well done!!

Thank you all for your wonderful comments! My limited time has prevented me from responding to each of you but know that each word of encouragement is much appreciated!

Marilyn, the raised glass on the jar is perfect. To me, that would have been a difficult area. And the jam itself looks good enough to eat. Thanks for the wip shots.

Marilyn!

OMG!!! This is unbelievably good!

Even after looking over your WIP pictures I still don't know how you did it!

A wonderful combination of being painterly and photorealistic at the same time.

You captured light, specifically subtle light, quite well here.

The jelly (in certain spots) almost appears to glow!

Extremely well executed! Be proud of this one!!
