Pear Positioned (NA)

Pear Positioned by Sandra Galda (NA)
6"x8" oil on Raymar canvas board

Did this at the oil class yesterday offered by Ron Straka. He gave me some much needed critique on my work. My shadows have tended to be too cool and need warmth and a closer attention to including the local color of the surfaces my shadows rest on. I now have some great ideas from Ron how to remedy this. My shadows are a bit warmer and more correct here dont you think? If interested in purchasing contact my email address or use PayPal button if included in this post. Thanks for looking, tell me what you think-leave a comment! Paintings by Sandra Galda are copyright.

This is a beautiful painting. The composition is interesting and compelling. I see what you mean about the shadows and the surrounding surface. Nicely done and thank you for sharing this information.

This came out wonderful! The advice he gave you definitely helped out. I had an art teacher that gave me a lot of advice when painting with Acrylics. Less cool colors, more warmth in shadows.

Sandra, I find I'm always struggling a little when it comes to balancing the "cools and the warms"...someday I'll get it. And yes, your shadows do look great!
