I have been working on larger paintings for two summer shows and neglecting my dailies! I miss the good feeling I get from finishing a little 6x6 and writing a post. What I enjoyed most about the strawberries was studying how they are structured..the surface pits, each with a seed...and how to capture that in paint without getting too knit-picky! I used a "wipe-out" tool to lift paint here and there, a very fast way to achieve some detail. I actually painted this in less time, too.
