Strawberry


Acrylic on 9x12 canvas sheet
Available through DPW gallery/auction


This was done for the Rookie Painter challenge which shows a bowl of hard candies and 1 lone candy to the side. I chose to focus on the single candy, zooming in close enough to read the flavor of the candy on it's wrapper. I also did a variation of my "shapes" style of painting for this.

A limited palette was used of Red-Orange, Orange, Cad Yellow Light & Cad Red Light; along with Titanium White for value adjustments. I chose to do the shadows in the same palette, but what doesn't show clearly in the photo are touches of Brilliant Purple in the wrapper. I used a very light version of the Brilliant Purple to do the background.

A fun little painting and I thank Jen for her challenges, they always give options for an artist to explore!
