"Fruit Plate" Oil on 8"x10" hardboard, in progress.
I decided to try another painting of my plate of fruit. This one is larger, and includes more of the fruit, and the white cloth in the back. I changed the position of the cloth after this picture was taken, so it will look different in the final painting.
I really loved doing a larger painting for a change. It seems funny that I call an 8"x10" painting a "larger" one. But, after so many little 5"x7"s that's the way it feels. I hope to do them more often.
I like taking pictures of my work in progress, it reminds me of where I started, and what it looked like in the beginning. Once the painting is finished, I don't remember what it looked like while I was working on it, so it's nice to look back and see. I also like to write down what I did, if it's something I've done differently that I want to remember.
I'll post the finished painting soon.
