A Conference Pear with Cherry and a few blueberries for today. I wasn't expecting any cherries for a while, but my Mum came home from shopping with a bag of them for me, so I had to paint one. The conference pears I have at the moment are quite a mix of colours and shapes and sizes, this one a sort of yellow ochre with greenish patches.
Some more Apples for today, the green apple is a Granny Smith and the red one is a Braeburn, I just did this one on the board, as I said yesterday with the cloth as well it looked to cluttered on a small canvas.
The Pomegranate again! this time with half a kiwi fruit and a cherry. I can count one one had the times I have painted a Kiwi fruit, I find it hard to get the colour just right, but I liked the combination of the reds and green in this painting.
A Pomegranate for today's painting. I haven't painted a Pom for a while as I haven't been able to get a nice one, and as I paint all the dailys from life rather than using photos I have to use whatever I can get. This one has a lovely rich red colour to it with hints of yellow and pink in places.
Here is another 10 cm square painting, I am selling them with a free easel, I have taken care to paint the edges so they look tidy on an easel, or you could frame if you prefer, I always make sure to leave enough space around the edges for framing.
I thought my pewter tankard would go well with these small fruits, the pewter is just shiny enough to reflect a little colour from the cherries, but not so shiny that it would reflect everything around.
I have been busy tonight, priming more canvas boards, it only seems like yesterday that I did the last lot. I like the canvas to be quite smooth, so I take time to prime, sand, and so on.
I enjoy painting these small canvas boards, and I am now selling them with a free display easel, I have taken care whilst painting the edges, so they look tidy on the easel, this is the second one I have done this week, the first one sold within 12 hours of listing. The next 10cm sq painting that I will be listing, is of a pear with a cherry, I also filmed that one, so I will post as soon as I have put the video together.
A citrus trio for today, this is the first time I have painted these three all together, and it took me a while to arrange them to fit ok in a small painting, I think it has turned out well though for my first go at this trio.
