In keeping with the theme of fun still lifes, here is another oil I had acres of fun executing. This one is a bit larger than 5x7.
"Fruit" 8x10 inches
Just looking to create a classic fruit still life on this one. I work from my own photo reference when I do use reference photography, and with perishable subjects such as this, you pretty much have to work from photos unless you're doing a quick sketch.
Rarely if ever will I paint entirely verbatim from my photos. In this case the major adjustments (some call it creative license) came in the look of the tabletop and the cloth napkin (which was a white paper napkin in reality).
