Continuing with the Christmas Season fruit studies as I avoid the sometimes -30C temperatures... this is the first stage of Oranges.
You can see that it is still wet following the wash of water applied over pastel. I really like that the brush strokes are evident at this stage.
Beginning to shape the objects and work their values.
Closer to completion just playing with the mat that they are set up on.
Happy with the finished piece and ready to find another fruit for study.
Happy Painting :)
