realism painting in oils STRAWBERRIES ON SPODE PLATE (SOLD)

4x4 inches oil on canvas
Arranged on a Spode plate is a small serving of fresh, perfectly ripe strawberries just for you. It’s really such fun to work the highlights around each individual seed as well as to capture the subtle translucency of the strawberry tips as they hang over the plate.

Thank you so much! These are always a joy to paint. If I ever get out of my studio, I'll buy even tinier brushes (very difficult to find much smaller than what I have) so I can add even more detail...just love painting the seeds, etc. Jeanne
