Yesterday, I decided it would be fun to do a still life for a change. I only had about 40 minutes to paint before we were of to a trip to the botanic gardens with my family, so it was a rough and ready fast moving sketch..
This morning, I thought perhaps I'd better do a little more work before I uploaded. I worked up the bowl around it a little more, after a couple of suggestions from my partner , Kit -
But it looked a bit too bowl-like now..and the plums needed work. So..
And then I thought the plum at the back was a little too red. Final adjustment and voila..
Of course, every painting needs a companion piece. And I thought it would be nice to show one from start to finish..
And this as as far as I have got just now. Will keep uploading as it progresses.. and let me know which versions you like best.
Mid afternoon - (after which it all goes a bit horribly wrong...)
And just for fun.. this cool website puts your pics in the gallery!
