I’ve finally finished my painting of those delicious summer strawberries, that I picked up at Central Market in Southlake. Poured out on the kitchen counter, I took 50 or so pictures from different angles. Then as I was painting the strawberries, I would buy a pint of ripe berries, use a few for reference and eat the rest. Now that’s the way to paint. I love creating the optical illusion of depth and sparkle that makes these strawberries take on that mouth watering look. I’m not sure this image does the strawberries justice, but they look as if you could pick them right off the canvas. This is a 36″ x 48″ gallery wrapped canvas, with the painting taken around the edges. It is created with professional grade acrylics and coated with an acrylic varnish to protect it for posterity and ready to hang on the wall.
“Summerlicious Strawberries” has officially been moved out of my studio, and I am ready for my next piece. If you are interest in this piece or have a comment or critique, I would love to hear from you. Email me at email@example.com or leave a comment here.
