oil on canvas paper 7"x10"
 For this painting, Lela Stankovic (PADT)asked us to be careful in this composition with the lost and found edges;our aim was to engage the viewer's mind as he gets subtle hints about what is not visible.
The advice was:
Avoid “fruit bowl effect” , having everything screaming for attention with an equal vibrancy. Slightly colored “grays” and “browns” are still very valuable balance in a painting. They allow our vibrant lights to thoroughly sing.

It was an interesting challenge, and I was happy to paint that.


  1. Very successful painting Sylviane, the light coming in is fantastic and so is the composition.

  2. Hello Sylviane! The translation toolbar is at the top of my page:)
    See you around and have a nice week!

  3. Beautiful painting, Sylviane. Your tomatoes glow and the leaves are painted beautifully. Love the drop.

  4. You really met this challenge head on. Love it.

  5. Wow, This is a beautiful strong painting, Sylviane, Love the colours and lights and darks!!!
