PASTEL BOUQUET IN CELADON JAR (SOLD)


4x5 inches oil on canvas panel

SOLD
A classical style still life with an fresh palette as compared to many of my small studies which more closely emulate the Dutch masters. The pastel rose bouquet and celadon jar provide a refreshing atmosphere enhanced by dramatic shadows.

Very nice! Wonderful painting and nice color palette as well. I'm interested in painting more in the lower chroma range, so these are a pleasure to see.

Thank you, Jeff. This palette is rather new to me and I find it quite refreshing -- as I'm sure you will as well in your pursuits. Expect to see more of this lighter more subtle atmosphere in my future "Little Gems". Thanks again! Jeanne
