Peaches in a Bag SOLD (Click here to bid on eBay)

I've always like Julian Merrow-Smith's painting technique, especially how he captured peaches. He always had the dusty red and purple shades that just feels like the fuzz it represents. He's a plein air painter living in Provence, France. He's a daily painter with a quick direct way of painting that more and more reminds me of a Cezanne in his early days, before he went semi cubist. Anyway, he's a great inspiration for landscapes and still lifes, and if I knew how to insert a hyperlink, you would see what I mean. Click on the image for a lrger view.

I agree, JMS paints a mean peach and a lovely line in landscape too, I think your peaches are pretty peachy too Mick.

I love Julian's paintings as well, a daily treat in the mailbox...
But your peaches are just as great... love the highlight on 'shy' one and the blueisch reflected light on the right one.... and the way you painted the paper bag...

Hope to see more fruit on your blog!
