New Still Life Watercolor Paintings - Dora Sislian Themelis

Thank you Laure, for the opportunity to try anew in the 100 Paintings Challenge. I'm starting off with a new energy which I will try to keep high to meet the goal. I plan to continue in watercolor paints, but I have been eyeing the oils lately since I found out there are new mediums out that do not emit harmful fumes.

As I did the last go-round, I will paint from life and from my own photographs.

Here are the first paintings of the challenge. #1 Pear and Shell Bits, #2 Bountiful, and #3 Blueberries.

Wonderful color and composition, loving the texture on those lettuces and blueberries and that peach. Such a joy to view, Dora.

Thank you ladies! Those berries were tough!

Hi Dora,
I really like all three of these but the berry painting is my favorite! Your colors are so clear and vibrant!

Love all the Farmers Market delights! Looks like I could pull a peach or a handful of blueberries right off the page.

Lots of color and form! The fruits looks ready to pick up and eat.
