"WHAT A PAIR" 11014 daily painter still life pears © Carol Nelson Fine Art

The idea with this little painting was to put down a stroke of color and then leave it there.  You can see lots of brush strokes.  There is an honest freshness to paintings done in this style.  It is impossible to muddle colors because the paint for each stroke is mixed on the palette and THEN applied - no mixing on the painting itself.  That's where some painters get into trouble and end up creating mud when they start messing around with paint already on the canvas.
