Old World Fruit
This particular project was inspired and designed for a decorative work of art for your home. The canvas size for this painting is one of my favorite compositions to create and design the fruit. I painted the background black and then sketched the different sized fruit with white chalk. The style of painting is the One Stoke technique with a touch of abstract. I apply the paint with acrylics using the One Stroke method and then add dry brush accents using many colors to add dimension to the fruit.
Drawing for Beginners (Part 2)
If you've never picked up a drawing pencil, this workshop is for you. The series will contain many videos and visuals over the next few months starting with the basics and will build up into specialized technique, finishing with a formal drawing of a puppy that's tipped over a flower pot. You'll learn about various supplies, what they can and cannot do, types of values, blending, textures and such. No drawing experience is necessary, but this workshop is also great for those wanting to refresh their drawing skills.
