In the mean time you can admire these three still-life paintings by just visiting this virtual gallery, from the comfort of your home at any time you choose. Not only that, but here you will be able to get up close and personal with these magnificent paintings to admire details in a way that would otherwise only be possible if you actually had these works of art hanging in your living room.
Following are images of these three new additions to this Gallery. ENJOY!
ABUNDANCIA by Dulce Beatriz, oil on canvas, 36″x48″. Circa 1999
Detail. Notice the realistic depiction of the pewter coffee pot, and the reflections on the metal surface; a rather difficult effect to achieve, but a trademark of impressionist master of the Spanish School Dulce Beatriz.
Detail. The masterful dominance of the artist with the brush and palette is evident here, in the depiction of the surfaces of the various fruit, the blue glass, and the reflection of light off the surfaces.
ALCACHOFA Y MANZANAS (ARTICHOKE AND APPLES) by Dulce Beatriz. Oil on canvas. 36″x48″ Circa 2001.
Detail. Notice the texture of the skins of the fruit and the reflection of light. Also the clover (Trifolium) on the bottom left.
Detail. Here you see the artichoke and the pomegranates in exquisite, realistic detail. Notice the play of light and shadow.
MELON Y CEREZAS by Dulce Beatriz. Oil on canvas. 36″x48″ circa 2001.
Detail. Apples, cherries and grapes. Notice how the light reflecting off each fruit, especially the grapes is treated individually and with full attention to the source and angle of incoming light, and the colors of surrounding elements.
Detail. Pears and cherries. Notice how the intensity of reflected light changes between those fruits in front and those in the back. Notice the folds of the tablecloth.
