I wanted to paint strawberries and needed something shiny to make it interesting. We went to Honiton where they have a market every Saturday and I found this little bowl along with some old silver plate cutlery. I did struggle with it - reds again! I stuck with it just to see if I could turn it into a reasonable painting and with some suggestions from my Wetcanvas pals, I think I got there.

It's been a while as I tried another landscape that wasn't my best! Decided to cheer myself up with a still life. I raided the fridge and found this onion which was enticingly glossy and fat. Reds still a problem so I feel a trip to the supplies shop coming on.... I have also made a light box in order to be able to direct the lighting on my still lifes. Everything like this means learning a new skill which is keeping me hooked. I'm running out of room for all this learning though, so it's a good thing they're starting that studio/conservatory tomorrow.
