Brie and Fruit Still Life

This 12 X 16 oil painting was painted at a workshop I attended this weekend.  The workshop started at 9:30 a.m. and ended at 4 p.m.   Six and half hours of painting... I was physically and mentally exhausted.  There were 15 students in a large sunlit studio with skylights painting about five still life set ups. There was a competition to get there early and get the best easel and choice of still life that I was not aware of and ended up in the back.  This still life wasn't my first choice, but I'm happy about the workshop and painting with such a talented group of artists.  Next time I will get there early and be prepared to be competitive.  In the end I love this painting and the experience.


  1. Another lesson learned. I love the glass jug or vase....you handled the transparency so well. And the pears.....beautiful shapes and shadows. The cheese I just want to eat!

  2. Lovely Moo! Especially like the little blue and cream number and how it reflects in the big green glass

    1. Thanks Karen - I didn't even notice the reflection...just painted it. As always I appreciate your comments.

  3. Your treatment of the glass is wonderful with the cool tones. Love your little blue and white piece and oh boy - you nailed the Brie

  4. Thank you Julie, I value your opinion as an artist.
