Fruit & Wine by Lynda Robinson

Pastel on Canson paper (gold)]

Magicians of Still Life
June 2014 Invitational Exhibition

Still Life Paintings group
sponsored by Solo Exhibition

This was a commission for the Victorian Wines Show Committee about 10 years ago (or maybe a bit longer). I placed a board behind the objects and a light on the right hand side of the objects to cast those ‘reflective’ shadows onto the board. This is a scanned image from a photograph, so the quality is a bit below par!

I am a pastel artist living in country Victoria, Australia. My subjects vary, ranging from landscapes, portraiture, animal studies, figurative, life drawing, still life and I find the challenge of painting water particularly enjoyable.

    beautiful Lynda, perfect composition and such subtle colours….

  • Thanks Linda. It is so long ago I can hardly remember doing it!!!! I’ve been shuffling through an old photo album of some of my earlier works and scanning them. I know when I’d finished it I was really pleased with it, but now it looks a bit ‘busy’. Probably a few too many elements?

    A beautifully arranged composition of both shapes and colours.Some lovely reflected colour in the shadows and on the wall behind the bottle. Another great pastel Lynda!

  • Do ya really think so Sandra? If YOU say it is a good composition I believe it, because you are the most technically knowledgeable artist I have ever met, and I value your comments so much.

    It is really lovely Lynda…superb work…

  • Thanks Janis. Now I come to think of it, I think there could even be a few of your ‘palette’ colours involved here! I have the lamp sitting on a sideboard, and I was looking at it this morning and remembering that I used it in a few paintings, so dug this one out!

    Excelent composition, Lynda, So realistic !!!!

  • Thanks George. I sometimes think I overdo the detail, but I just can’t help myself! I guess it is the style I have evolved over the years.
