Figs and Pod Study

Figs have such great color. They are so much fun to paint.

Catching Up

8"x8" oils on board

I am excited about this painting and in many ways feel like it is a new beginning. I kept my strokes loose throughout and the brushwork and style is consistent. I also am happy with the color and if you look at the detail image, happy with the subtle transitions. This painting feels like a breakthrough. I am painting at least once a week (hard to do more as I continue to work full time as an illustrator), sometimes I paint twice a week, but I see that this is starting to pay off.
