Quinces. Watercolour 6"x9"

This is the last of three paintings that I have finally finished. This one I started in the garden of Peckover House, Wisbeach, East Anglia. I have strengthened the shadows, completed some leaves that were white paper, and emphasised the colour on the stems. The predominant orange/yellow/green palette pulls it all together I think. Just a little bit of “spatter” at the end was put in to break up the smooth graduated washes on the quinces.

One Response to “Quinces”

  1. you may enjoy ‘the quince tree sun’ a 1992 film about the artist Antonio Lopez painting the ripening quince tree in his garden. Slightly ponderous at times but interesting insight into the creative process on the same subject.
    Your painting has a rather satisfying fullness to it, I like it.
