Dear Rick, this peach is simply ..... royal!!
You got the most natural and vivid colours for it an even its almost unperceivable hair! :eek::)
At a second pass, its soft round curves and shape also gave me less noble After 9 o'clock similes. :D

Elegant, simply elegant! It is as if this peach is proudly announcing
itself in all of it's colorful splendor. The rich palette is striking, the
detail is amazing and your artistry is undeniable, Rick. Beautiful in
every respect! :)

Excellent in all respects! One of your masterworks.
( so hard to keep from saying it is "just peachy!")

Rick, this is astounding! You've captured the softness and texture of a peach perfectly and that itself is amazing...but I can't get enough of those leaves either! they're so delicate in color and placement, just beautiful work! :)

Wow, Rick, you got this one done quickly! It turned out so very nicely! But then all your work turns out that way! :) Incredible handling of the skin of the peach!

Hi Rick. Excellent still life imagery! The peach is awesome. A very ancient feel to it. By the way, I was checking out some of your earlier submissions and they are all fantastic, however, "Natures Reward" and "Red Wine" absolutely blew me away!

I sure don't want it to seem like I am just trying to keep this thread going.. I'm not.. But with the comments received, I would feel awful if I didn't say thank you to all of you.. Gee, thanks a lot.. I love painting, and it really gives me a glow, when people sincerely express their liking of my work.. So thanks again, to all..:)

A nice, a beautiful work, and as always faithful to your style...

There's something about it....I can almost smell the peach. Makes my mouth water............

03-20-2009, 02:36 PM
Perfect! Mmm so delicious. I Wanna eat it:D

A gorgeous piece of "Kitchen Art". Stunning lighting!
Caesar, curb your brain.

I think what is most brilliant about this image is that the textures of all the elements are so well done, the puffy, and furry texture of the peach is evident, as is the rough and gritty texture of the leaves and stalk.. thanks for making this.

Wow, Rick. :eek: I just want to grab this peach and have a bite right away. The texture on that peach is so real. I really like those leaves composition and the background color. It feels like there's a spot light on top for this special peach. Very fine work as usual. :)

Your handling of textures is positively amazing. Great work!
