Hi all, today I am sharing with you a recent still life of various fruits. After having practiced painting from life individual fruits I have combined them all into a still life composition done on canvas with acrylics. I learned a lot from this process as it was more challenging than previous exercises I had done.

The process is shown below

Underpainting - makes painting future layers easier than painting on blank canvas
