A Dash of Red...

Inspired by red fruit and flowers, I have made a few still life paintings, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I did most of the painting in a direct way, in one sitting (per painting, that is!). For the strawberries I painted an intuitive, colourful undercoat in acrylic, and then did the oil paintings on top of that, letting some of the undercoat dictate the background as well as the composition.
