FALL HARVEST




 Fall Harvest
watercolor on paper
30.5 × 23 cm 

The rich vibrant colors of the season inspired me to paint this still life set up. I am unifying the objects by using similar colors, trying to work them together as a whole.

  4. Hi Celia, I am just catching up on your blog and love what you have been doing. I love these autumn colours!
    I was so impressed to see you have been out and about sketching on location and I particularly loved your coffee cup and croissant. You were very persistent to then go on to sketch some street scenes. I wish I could join you over there to sketch in Rome - how amazing that would be! I hadn't thought how it must be hard to find a quiet unobtrusive spot to set up to sketch though - it must be quite a challenge in such a busy city. I hope you continue with it. I am trying to revive my sketching habit as it seems to have waned a little since the addictive phase I went through a while back.

I hope everyone's New Year is off to a great start!

I started this painting last year and set it aside for a while.  I worked from a cell phone image I took while preparing breakfast.

My favorite way to eat avocado is on toast with a poached egg, I sketched it after Christmas. It keeps me full until lunch time.
