Autumn At The Kitchen Window by BarbaraPommerenke Autumn At The Kitchen Window by BarbaraPommerenke
Oil, 60cm x 80cm

Autumn surely is the most inspiring season for painters.

Chinese lanterns, thistles and apples grown around the house at my kitchen window, which is facing a small park.

Okay I'm new to critiquing but I'm gonna give it a go because this piece is Beautiful! Im gonna start with what I like, then what I would change if it were mine. The rhythm here makes a lot of sense in your brush strokes. Precision is super, your drawing skills show and that is a huge plus to the over all painting. Dept and atmosphere are nice especially in the lights out side. You did a good job with colors, all the colors seem to be present in one way or another all over the canvas. I like how you put yellows on the white window seal, and the tree colors in the back repeat in the foreground. Fantastic! Some of the shadows up front could be worked a little bit but its fine any way. Really the only thing i would have done to if it were mine is contrast the roller object from the table to stand out a little more subtly from the table and shadows. As well as the side of the apple crate, im talking about the side of the crate with blues. It makes sense because of the texture... but for some reason it stands out from the other objects as not sharing the same source of light? Maybe I'm wrong, did you paint at different times of day light? Very nice piece over all Congrats!

I'd love to see this painting in real life. It seems you bought out a best of impressionistic oils.

Thanks so much,your comment makes me blush! Just today I got this bunch of dried flowers away from my window to put a vase with fresh birch twigs for my Easter decoration there. I still kept the lampion flowers, but the thistles were really faded out by now.
The painting itself is still on sale as original and fine art print. It is in a small personal exhibition in commercial premises right now.

I love all of the different colors in this. It is clever the way you pushed the cooler colors to the edges, and the warm in the center and foreground.
