Blue Pitcher

I painted this little blue pitcher at a Carol Marine Workshop back in December.  I was thinking about how to make my paintings more successful -- browsing back through my notes -- and it struck me that simplicity is a good thing!  Particularly when painting in the 6" x 6" format.   Some of those old sayings come to mind:  "Less is More", "KISS ... Keep It Simple Stupid", "The Less Said the Better".  These seem to hold true for painting as well!

  1. I like your color combination here, Jill. Very nice! Your suggestion "to keep things simple" is something I strive for.
