    An 8*6in watercolour. I rarely do still life paintings so would be interested in what people think.

    Brian,

    The looseness and the colors give this painting a lovely, fresh look.  The sunshine on the wall is a nice touch. Could you add something to the empty space on the upper left?

    Nice choice in wine.  Anyway, i think that’s a lovely painting

    Take time to look and make sure you see.

    It’s a very nice still life, Brian and I do like the sunshine effect.   The only trouble is it takes your eye straight out of the picture.   I agree with Paula – compositionally you need something to draw the eye back in.

    Very nice Brian, its good to try something different, I like the looser way you have handled this.  Btw, have you pinched Charles Reid’s duck! Lol!

    Noticed that did you. Been talking/following Chris Petri, one of Charles’ students and it just crept in,lol. Swapped a pic with Chris like we did.

    I haven’t tried a still-life in a long time and am reluctant to be negative as I like the decoy, the looseness and the window shadow.   But. my understanding is there shouldn’t be too many disparate elements and you have the duck, books, fruit, wine, flowers, art supplies and a clock.

    I haven’t seen your work recently. Maybe you’re posting on Martin’s site and I haven’t been there in a while.
