To all the Redheads out there who look glorious in red and any other jewel colour. I am watching many historical movies at the moment with all these rich velvets and silks in clothing and interiors and cannot say no to their influence! Copyright Pera Schillings All rights reserved
Fresh from the easel and sold already to a collector from Germany ! Unfortunately the digital image doesn't bring out the sumptuous colour of the background namely an undefined deep purple. Copyright Pera Schillings All rights reserved
This is my second still life I have ever done and dates back a few years and is still in my possession. It is painted from real life. I do love the composition, the clear lines and the very much "Giorgio Morandi" look.
It was one of those quick paintings too!!! Copyright Pera Schillings All rights reserved
I got this beautiful alabaster green protea from one of my clients who grow them on their farm in Stellenbosch. Proteas as beautiful as they are in their own right- I love the bearded variety with their fury and velvety petals- are in principle rather rigid flowers.
The original idea was to offset the flower with a neutral background in interesting different white's,but I felt compelled to go for vivid colour with a palette knife!
I like the result.... Copyright Pera Schillings All rights reserved
No autumn is complete without an abundance of pears.Yellow, gold and green and subtle browns dominate the palette. I am testing colours against greys...... Copyright Pera Schillings All rights reserved
I must admit a have a great weakness for pears, their ambiguous shape and of course all those wonderful colourings. These forell pears surprised me with their bright greens and reds, every pear seems to have a character of their own.........
