12x7 oil on canvas

I had some fun in the produce aisle.
Michael Nyman's score from "The Piano" was my soundtrack today.

I really like this this one. These values are solid and really punch out. Nice delicate shadows and catch of the highlights. Maybe some stuff to add: I'd love to see you loosen some of those edges. Also maybe blend just a little less so that the strokes (color notes) are more apparent. This really is a beautiful painting. Great work :)

I appreciate the valuable feedback. Those are the issues that come up for me because I paint with such trepidation. Perhaps a liquid refreshment would loosen up my work? Best wishes for your upcoming show.

Thank you for your comments! You're very kind!

I can't believe you just started painting. You're paintings are very good! Keep painting every day.
