More Marbles...

It seems that I can not get enough of painting Marbles! 
 Here is my latest...


'Roll With It!


8" x 8" Oil on Museum Quality Gesso Panel
SOLD


This one took quite a while to paint. 
Capturing their 'glassiness' and transparency can be tricky! 
But actually, the real thing is even more effective than the photo, so I am happy :0)




 As always it was really difficult to capture how the painting really looks. Propping it on a display easel seems to do it more justice I feel!




So, the question is, am I all marbled out?
Well, no, I don't think I am quite there yet... Maybe one or two more :0)

Watch this space!!

      That is what I was going for, the play of light, so I'm very glad you get that from what you see! :0)

  5. Sandra, you did such a fantastic job of capturing all the light and color bouncing around the marbles!!! Gorgeous work! And I do like that subtle gradation of background color from blue to orange - perfect!

    1. Thanks so much Kathryn. I'm glad you like the surface... I was going for warm light and I was happy I achieved it because this came from my imagination. The actual set up was in the cool dull daylight and there was little gradation or warmth at all!:0)

  6. Bonsoir ma chère Sandra,

    Comment résister ? J'aime ces billes... comme j'aimais y jouer lorsque j'étais petite et à cette époque il était étrange qu'une fille joue aux billes ! Surtout dans une école de filles et n'ayant aucun frère !... J'étais et je suis toujours fascinée par la lumière qui semble vouloir pénétrer et les couleurs figées en spirale dans le verre...
    Tu as magnifiquement réussi cette toile et je ne suis pas certaine qu'aujourd'hui je réussirais à gagner un boulet ! Toutefois je sais qu'elles ont gagné mon coeur !...
    Très joli travail...

    Gros bisous ☼

    Really clever work, Sandra, and I can see these being so popular that they'll be flying off the easel, so colourful and original ... really love them. for goodness sake don't stop now!
