Tumbling

The array of local produce at this time of the year at the market in Pointe Claire Village is pretty spectacular, with pumpkins of every size tumbling out of bins and crates — some as small as apples and others that might need a forklift to be moved. As I sketched, one of the ladies who works there came over to have a look at my drawing and mentioned that it might be a good idea to come back tomorrow when they do the really big pumpkin display but I think I prefer the more random look of this one.

    Shari, the display is random, but your painting is composed beautifully.

    Love the composition and movement you created by zigzagging the viewers eyes through the painting. Very creative action for a still life!

    I adore all the line work in this one. The stuff in the background in the top right corner is very effective for setting the space – diminished size, detail and color intensity. Makes me wanna go to the farmers market.
