Blackberries Golden Plums Transparent Apple Still Life Painting

For much of the past couple of months I have been absorbed in the work of Richard Diebenkorn, anAmerican abstract expressionist, and that of Cezanne and Matisse. Painting seems to be primarily about light and colour for me, not in the absence of form but form most often plays second violin – holding the composition together without any solo parts. The days of light, seasons, colour, form and space collide within my ordered and defined sensory system. Not chaos. No not that. Only adjustments and a release from specifics. Blackberries and golden plums are my favourites. The transparent apples just happen to ripen at the same time adding a nice shape and colour for balancing a still life plate.

Update November 14, 2014: This painting is now Sold! Detailed viewing  and purchase information for other original paintings by Terrill Welch HERE.

Blackberries do not keep for very long on a plate so I took the time to also do a few photography reference images. This one, which is similar to the painting has been released on its own merit as a still life photography image.
