Persimmon and Plumbago – Karen Winters Daily Painting

October 30th, 2007

Persimmon and Plumbago – 8 x 10 oil – Available

I was coming into the house from the driveway today and saw that our plumbago shrub was covered with blue-violet blooms. It immediately struck me that those colors would be a good compliment to the yellow-orange persimmon I painted last night, and which had survived the ordeal, no worse for wear.

There is something to be said for working in a series. I found the persimmon easier to paint today than last night

So I set up another still life in the same stage, this time a wider shot incorporating a bit of drapery. I don’t often draw folds, let alone paint them, so this was a good experiment for me, and I’m satisfied with the result.

I used the same colors as yesterday for the persimmon, plus UM blue and some alizarin crimson for the plumbago.

  2. So fresh and pretty! The drapery looks like it could be on a lovely wedding dress.

  4. Wonderful combination of colors, Karen. Love the flower shadows on the cloth and the lyrical touch throughout.

  10. Wow, I just spent 2 hrs with our interior designer trying to get this color scheme going in our living room. I don’t suppose this one is still available?
