pretty things


Make Lemonade, pve design artwork, sold.
I made time to go to my painting class and painted these pretty things. I love taking time for pretty little things. I also love fine lines, but sometimes feel the need to step out of my box.

pve design, water-colour, small work of art, sold.
This was my first attempt, then I went back to my fine lines. Which one do you prefer, with the fine lines or without?
Thanks to each of you who took the time to look carefully and to leave me a comment, both works of art have been sold and I am so thrilled to know that my work will be loved as much as I love painting. Thank-you!

I prefer the fine lines, but they both are beaytiful.

Both are wonderful, but I like the fine line you add to your work. I like to think of it as your trademark. Smile... xoxo

With. I like the definition, the shape that the lines bring.

I do love the fine lines, it brings emphasis to the details!

Yes, I love the fine lines...and do feel it just comes naturally. Thanks so much for your comments.

Both are lovely, however, I prefer the one without the fine lines. It reminds me of a Cezanne, along the Impressionistic style. Hope you're having a wonderful Anniversary Day!

I LOVE these. If I had to pick, I'd say that I perfer the fine lines since they give your work such depth and charm. But the painting without is very lovely too.

Hi!
I so much prefer the fine lines. However,I think the outcome would have been ultimate if you had not added fine lines to the fruit. Or, maybe even if the definition of the fruit was just a tad less severe it would appeal more to my eyes.

That being said, all that you do is amazing!

I prefer without the lines. While I love your work with your signature fine lines, in this instance the still life watercolor without lines is softer and more elegant.

indeed both are great- but I am drawn more to the fine lines. I like how it makes the items pops.

The first one is just perfect, got lot's of definition and I like it a bit better.
Such dainty details of life! Lovely.

It would not be PVE without those fine lines! GT

I love them both - but the fine lines is your trademark - it's what we all "know" as pve

I like the lines (of course they are both great).Very nice sunday morning coffee mugs above this post.

Emily said...

I love both of these but if I had to pick one, it would be with the lines. They are one addition that just add your own touch!

Love the lines. Your work is great inspiration for me. Started painting again after nearly 30 yrs. Please keep apinting and sharing your work!

With. While the without is lovely as well

My Notting Hill said...

Both are beautiful but for this type of painting I prefer the one without the fine lines. But then again, if you didn't show the one without I wouldn't have missed it.

I love that you push yourself to do what your not comfortable with. i think it makes us grow as artists. Sometimes it gives you the clarity to keep doing what you have done before.

Tough call, but I do believe I prefer the one without! I agree with Mlle. Purple Flowers...something very Cezanne about it.

Thanks so much for your comments, both works of art have been sold, so I guess there is no reason to read between the lines! I enjoyed working on both of them.
