"Tea Cup of Strawberries" Oil on 5x7 board





I haven't bought strawberries in quite a while, they're just not as sweet in the winter.  But, these smelled really good,  I was surprised.... so I bought some, and painted them the same day, (and ate them too of course).
  I love how this one came out, and I remember some good advise I once heard...  to make sure that you arrange and rearrange your set up until you find something that you can't wait to paint!  That is how this one went, I was sure about the composition before I started.   Sometimes I get so impatient to just start painting, I think I will work things out as I go... and that usually leads to problems.

  8. I've been reading back a few of your posts and upon seeing this painting I notice your skill at achieving those soft and clear edges you say are difficult. Well I can't tell they are difficult for you! This is an amazing painting-edges beautiful! I do love the bananas and orange, cup and eggs and toast paintings too! You just get better and better if that is even possible.
