For a still life painter, fall has to be the best time of year. As I wandered into the produce section, it was all I could do to keep from shouting out loud. Yippee, yippee! Inspiration is easily found among the bountiful array of fruits and veggies. My eye was drawn to the purple of these plums, and I had so much fun painting them.
Recently, I found a great video clip by Brenda Semanick. She discusses drawing ellipses, and a short demo on painting soft grays. If you're interested, you can view it here.
I hope you're having a great week! Happy painting!
