#4 of 30

 "Plum Crazy" - 6" x 8" - Oil on Canvas -

Well, I'm behind by one day, but I will make it up tomorrow.
I had to work for a few hours this morning, then had more errands than anticipated this afternoon, so didn't get a start on this until 4:30, then I had to whip out and do another errand at 5:30.  But, it's DONE!
I really enjoyed painting this one.  It was a challenge to get the incredible variety of colours in the plums.  Looking at it now that it is complete, I think I could have used some artistic license and added some more of the bluish "bloom" highlights .  To me they just scream "plum".  The background was really loose to paint.
Looking forward to painting two tomorrow!


  1. Love all the color on those plums Shar, you nailed it!

    1. Thanks Marcela. I kind of like this one too. Unusual for me.

  3. This is truly a winner! Again, brilliant use of complimentary colours and yes, you could have employed more blueish bloom, but it's mighty fine just as it is!
