Gossip, Three Pears, Original Oil Painting

The inspiration for "Gossip" came from a recent trip to one of our local diners. There were 3 friends sitting at the counter, having coffee, laughing, talking and just enjoying each others company. This painting conveys the colorfulness, liveliness and the energy the ladies exhumed. I enjoyed their presence.

These three lovelies are painted on a 8 x 10 canvas with artist quality oil paints. I used a basic palette consisting of cadmium red, cadmium yellow, sap green, ultramarine blue, burnt umber and titanium white.
