    Whence it all started

    This is the first test with the loaded knife on a still life which here is absolutely imaginary Not an artpiece, but I adjusted it not to show a too dauby painting ...

    This is a great experiment Caesar and I like the effect, and love those soft pretty colors

    it looks as if we are in for some beautiful treats for the eyes from you. I think they made the paint loading palette knife with you and Oriane in mind. this looks to be a wonderful complement to your style. and from your Cezanne I can see we are in for many treats.

    I like it a lot Caesar !!!
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    Thank You, dear Pat! I just had to look to a real composition, but I just put much light (and presumably little dark) here. The figures along the diagonal try to keep it almost balanced, but I didn't care too much.

    Right, dear Screenpayer, I'm about to explore how to use the loaded knife too. I rarely use the thick paint and the knife mostly on the background this way. With this new AR we may do much more and I always try to stay as much as I can in the "real world" simplest procedures ... Thank You!

    Thank You, dear Gary, although it's evidently not really a painting, just some experiment composed together.

    Thank You, dear Semd74. I always liked enlightened paintings as well as tonal ones whence a figure emerges. Maybe here there's too much light.

    Thank You, dear Juz! In fact I also started another couple of painting with it in my WIP section. It really gives You a plus I think.

    In a way the fruit and the bottle may be a reflection on a mirror, dear Sandra. Thank You!
