Original Oil Painting Just a Couple

Just a Couple


10" x 10"
Painted on gessobord.

Strawberries were on sale at Festival Foods and I could not resist grabbing them to paint. So after a couple of hours I came up with this still life. It was a nice refresher course on how to paint strawberries. It is so easy to get carried away with all the details. To avoid this I paint them with all the details and then the next day soften the ones in the shadows and brighten the parts in the light. I posted a picture of the still life I was working from below.
