Friday is Art School (Vineri e scoala de arte plastice)

For me October means back to school. Art school that is. I had great fun today trying oil paints for the first time, but while that is drying back at the studio let me share last week's pastel painting (Canson paper, 50x70 cm).

Octombrie aduce cu sine si un nou an la scoala de arte. Azi m-am simtit foarte bine incercand pentru prima data pictura in ulei, dar pana cand aceea se usuca in atelier vreau sa va arat pastelul de saptamana trecuta (pe hartie Canson de 50x70 cm).


"Rusty Autumn"


and here are some close-ups
(cateva detalii)


I had to paint the leaves from imagination because I finished the painting at home. I only had them sketched along with the image from my memory. They were maple leaves but they were so dry you could barely distinguish their shape.

However, it's the beautiful contrasts that I love about this still life.

A trebuit sa pictez frunzele din imaginatie pentru ca am terminat pictura acasa. Le aveam doar schitate si erau oricum destul de greu de reprezentat fiind atat de uscate incat cu greu le mai distingeai forma.
Totusi mi-a placut foarte mult contrastul din acesta natura statica.

Hi Meda,
This is a really beautiful autumn theme composition.
The light reflections on the glass came out very realistic and I love the colors. Nice work.
