Avocado, oil on canvas, 8×10 I ate my model again. I will never get actual people to pose for me at this rate. This is an alla prima painting that took a couple of hours. Painting and model

Ginger, oil on canvas, 8×10 This ginger has seen better days, but it still had at least one portrait sitting left in it. I painted this one a bit larger than life-size so it would sit on the canvas better. more wibbly wobbly shadows

Alla prima ginger study, 8×10. This one is on canvas, because I ran out of board. Canvas is okay, I guess. nice wiggly shadows are fun to paint

Dragonfruits look like they ought to get up and walk away. Next time I’ll pose it like it’s sitting for a portrait instead of collapsed dejectedly.
