Daub du Jour

My name is Marianne Plumridge. I am an artist of mythic fantasy works and fine art images. More of which can be seen at my website, 'MariannePlumridge.com', and also my main Blog, 'Muse du Jour'. These sites are in the links section of this page. This site began life as a painting a day blog in 2007. However that project has now passed, but I still find myself painting in that way. So this site will now be the showcase my new paintings as inspired by those previous efforts.

Day 21

Rose Heart Box
(6x8", Oil) Price: $100.00

I got inspired to paint this yesterday! I'd been looking for something, and my eye fell on this. A dear friend sent it to me for Christmas, from Australia. According to the little note inside it, it's a vintage tibetan silver heart jewellry trinket box. Hmm. I thought it was pewter. But no matter, it painted up just lovely. I'm rather pleased with this painting. The box itself is only about two and a half inches across, but I wanted plenty of space for it to react with the red cloth I used as a back drop. Lots of nice juicy reflections.

Only four colours used: French Ultramarine, Burnt Sienna, Alizirin Crimson and of course, Titanium White. Brushes were: half inch Flat, Size 6 Filbert, and a very small round - a '0' I think.

Loved painting with such lush colours!
See you tomorrow

Thank you, R. I had a lot of fun with this. All of that crimson and the reflections were kind of luscious to work with. :-)

Thanks for stopping by.
