Hi there, I decided to just set different types of fruit in a box and paint them, mostly to practice painting values. Last week I did these pears on a 5 x 7 panel and on Monday I did apples, I'll post that soon. I did use a palette knife to create some texture.
One of the local galleries just posted a new idea for a show in February, it will be about dance. I have several ideas already, I love when they do these shows. It really encourages me to paint when I have a goal.
