Oranges and Kiwis. I like Cézannes still lifes with fruit (as well as all his other work!). Here’s an attempt of catching fruit in watercolour myself. I find it hard to catch the impression of an orange (well ok, it’s orange … but getting the structure of the surface so it doesn’t just look like a peach or an apple …).
Watercolour based on an oil painting by Ilya Mashkov. I saw it at an exhibition and found it very striking.
Watercolour based on an oil painting by Rik Wouters (Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, Brussels). I like his work very much.
Self-portrait Lovis Corinth. My first attempt at a moleskine-watercolour. Based on a dramatic self-portrait oil painting by Lovis Corinth (Wallraf-Richartz-Museum, Cologne).
