Painting with Nava

The last time I saw Nava it was in junior school some 35+ years ago. Few weeks ago she told me via Facebook, that after looking at my Blog she decided to paint as she recently retired from teaching and she did her first painting in oils after that. While visiting home we had a small friends from school reunion, I told her while seeing her for the first time after such a long period, that one day during my visit I’ll give her a call to arrange to paint with her together. We met this morning and it was a very warm morning. We bought a canvas in a local store and decided what subject we would like to paint together and what was the composition we both liked. I explained to her my process which I normally work with, it was completly new to her. I suggested about the items I use and what I do and decided instead of painting two paintings to do one together. I have started and as we continued I could see that she was hungry and eager to paint. I was confident that she clearly understood what I was talking about. I started each stage and soon I have passed her the brush to let her do her part. You can decide by watching the process we did here below how good she was. I had a great morning and let me tell you the paintings is a great master piece in my eyes but I’ll let you be the judge… I am a great advocate that every person can paint no doubt Nava did! Enjoy.

    1. Jenny thank you very much it was great pleasure and enjoyment to share something we both love to do. Enjoy the reunion with brushes after such a long time not seeing each other. Hope you are having good Easter.

  2. A real collaboration Doron ! What a great way to spend that renewed friendship time …
    Lovely work .

    1. strange to find something in common after such a long time when everyone lived their own life and paints and bushes help this link and communication πŸ™‚ Have a great Easter x

  3. I think it turned out great! Painting an image with someone else I would think to be very difficult, especially if you don’t know the other person’s techniques. But it seemed to work out very well for you two.

  4. Hi Doron!
    My wp problem has solved( I don’t know how!!!! As I don’t know why it happened too!!!!😁)
    Any way glad to see your beautiful paintings and will read your posts one by one !
    What a great collaboration, Doron!
    And the result is a very beautiful painting❀️

    1. Jane thank you, it is not the first time i work with someone but it is the first time I work together and it is amazing what each can bring in and how it work together I am sure I’ll do many more. It was gret fun to show someone how you work and to develop their technique on your style. I am sure we are all individual but to adopt someone else style it is not that easy. Greta day!

    1. Maxine thank you very much and glade you enjoy it as we did also, it was a great experience and I feel good being able to pass some knowledge πŸ™‚

  5. This is awesome, not only have you created a wonderful
    painting, but you have actually merged your talents for art
    and combined them to enhance this final result, of which
    I agree with you, it is a fine painting my friend and something
    to be proud of too. I notice the vase with flowers in on the
    last picture and I am assuming that these were your gift to
    your long time friend πŸ™‚ Of course I could be wrong…

    Have a fun evening Doron and enjoy your painting πŸ™‚

I did not… beside nothing could survive the heat in 38c but in a painting… Glade you took a look as I missed most of it… good observation mate… there is always next time… OK now I’ll remmber flowers for ever πŸ™‚ Sorry for a lte reply but the health play with me at the moment… but I am working on it..

      1. I hope that you are feeling better now
        and that your aim is set high for more of
        your artwork, it seems to me that there
        is nothing that you couldn’t paint if you
        set your mind to it, and the outcome of
        every painting is spectacular πŸ™‚

        Keep up the wonderful work and remember the flowers next time, as you will already know, ladies love flowers πŸ™‚
