Painting this one in acrylics on paper might not have been the world’s greatest plan.
But if you start off with one plan and then it evolves into another – hey.
I always start off with acrylics as if they were watercolours (see the starting pics here) and then get far too enthusiastic trying to get some luminous quality out of them.
Anyway, I liked being out in the shed and working on this until the paper turned into a Japanese lacquered board.
And I learned more on the way. For example it’s a good idea to paint the flowers first and the fruit later, but I always go for the fruit first.
Also, I don’t know whether you are allowed to do red and yellow together (like a Chemist Warehouse sign which is anti-aesthetic in everyway), but I just went for it.
Well the roses are all finished, so no more of them for a while and, yes, we did eat the apples (and because they were 2kg for $2 and from the market, they were still yummy).
