Apples... apples... apples...


Misschien hou ik zo van het schilderen van appels omdat het min of meer therapeutisch is.
Spelen met kleuren en water en kijken wat er gebeurt, maken dat ik me erg Zen voel. :)

Maybe I like painting apples so much because it is kind of therapeutic. 
Playing with colours and water and watching what happens, makes me feel very Zen. :)

Prachtig Judy. De lichtval is ook geweldig! Dat aquarellen therapeutisch is weet ik ook sinds 2003:) Het Zen gevoel vasthouden is de kunst!

Hi Judy - and very successful you are at this, your watercolour washes are lovely. I know what you mean about feeling Zen when painting them - I like to use a sable brush, they give such a good feeling to the paint as you work.

Judy said...

Thank you Tito, it is a great subject for experimenting with colours!

Hi Jude, thank you!

Dankjewel Marleen! Nouja, dat resultaat daar twijfel ik vaak aan. :)

Hi Barbra Joan! I am so pleased you like my apples, they are so enjoyable to paint!

Hoi Renate! Ja soms ook grote frustratie, maar deze keer gelukkig niet. Ben in spannende afwachting van de Yupo. ;)

Thank you so much, Cristina, I appreciate your comment very much!

Hi Ann! Great feeling isn't it!

Cora said...

Geweldig, Judy. Ik vind appels moeilijk te schilderen. Ik weet niet waarom. In mijn blog, heb ik geen appels gepost.

Jane said...

Hi Judy, I think you like to paint apples because you paint them so well, all of your apple paintings are really beautiful.

Michael Bailey said...

Absolutely gorgeous work, Judy. Your watercolours have moved to a new level - masterly I'd say :) The feeling of sunlight on the apples is outstanding!

Judy said...

Hi Cora, dankjewel! Ik appels, jij gele rozen, erg mooi!

Thank you Jane, the more I paint them the more I like to paint! :)

Hi Michael, thank you so much! The apples give me opportunity to practise colour use, techniques and effects, darks and lights, backgrounds, etc.

Great therapy and your apples just glow!

Blaga said...

I like your apples, I find them somehow comforting too. And you are so good at painting them!

Sandra said...

These are gorgeous! I think all fruit lends itself to watercolour doesn't it? It must be there natural juiciness! :0)

John (JWJarts) said...

I love your loose style Judy and these apples are just gorgeous. :)

Judy said...

Thank you Jane! I learn a lot from this simple subject!

Hi Cynnie, thank you! Painting apples is healthy for the soul! :)

Thank you Karen!

Thank you Blaga! I think it's their roundness but that is my theory. :)

Thank you John, glad you like them!
