this is beautiful, Pat!!! Oh my goodness...the details are amazing!!

Thanks, Hilda. My camera doesn't pick up all the nuances in the colors....for examaple, my apples have more variations of red in them. Which would make it show even more detail. Nevertheless, it still doesn't come close to the original by Delaporte. lol

Those eggs are just gorgeous, Pat. Just perfect and so real looking. I love the rustic sense and the sense of nature's bounty I feel from this piece.

Pat Koscienski said...

Thanks, Sherry. I think the technique Delaporte used was the chiaroscuro...Chiaro meaning dark/black and scuro meaning light. It's placing the light next to the dark, thus forming that dramatic outcome.

What a dramatic painting. Stunning.

This is a beautiful still life, Pat - I especially love the subtle warm and cool colors in the eggs. Wonderful!

Pat Koscienski said...

Thanks, Linda....I'm all for dramatic. That's probably why I am always drawn to the chiaroscuro technique.

Pat Koscienski said...

Thanks, Claire. I really learned a lot from trying to copy Delaporte's painting. It's always an experience.

This is gorgeous. I like the way you've really challenged yourself - with not just one, but TWO, THREE round types of objects - the ones I find notoriously hard to draw. But you've got the lighting and shadow on these perfectly, they just pop out from the screen.

Thanks, Sketcher. It's only for the skill and talent of Delaporte that I was able to attempt this painting....coming not close to his original. What talent he had!
