Plopped on a Pitcher, 6 x 6"

Sarajean and I had our first painting session together last week. It took awhile for this paint to dry! (I applied the paint more thickly than usual.) Our limited palette consisted of Ultramarine Blue, Burnt Sienna, and White. We set up this small pitcher on a cloth and perched a clementine on top, inside a black box that Robin Thornhill had in her studio. She graciously let us use her more centrally located studio, so Sarajean and I could get together (from New Hampshire and Massachusetts). Thanks again, Robin! Both Sarajean and I wiped out others that day, but feel this is a great exercise and we'll do it again, respecting our timer when it rings! Won't we, Sarajean? : )

Great job with a limited palette, Pam! You and Sarajean have inspired me - I will be joining you next Thursday!

It's so Cezanne! I'm going right to my studio to do something in this color combo, it's really wonderful.

Really nice attention to values here Pam!

Really wonderful painting!!! It is so Cezanne, but the limited palette and values make it so dramatic . . . I love the minimal way you painted the clementine.
