    A fruitful delight in watercolours

    Here's my last watercolour experiment.
    It started as a speedy one, but I eventually applied some more patience and three layers to the initial pencil outlined sketch.
    I used many reference pictures only to the extent they provided me with an idea of each fruit proportion and colours, but I didn't pick any colour or copied any element, also because they were all under different lights and with different resolutions.
    I don't know whether I was able to compose them decently, look them mutually consistant and homogeneous as a style (I kept experimenting practically on each fruit or flower etc. to give also a vaguely tactile feeling).
    Anyway I'm satisfied enough of the results (no stickers or stencils, by the way) and I feel I got a good control of watercolours, at least in this not much transparent style ...
    Probably I ould have improved some details a little bit (or spoilt it ...), but enough is enough ...

    Ah Caesar,
    your paintings always manage to generate a physical effect on me...
    this time it's hunger!

    Great one!

    Caesar, this turned out so very well! You´re definitely getting a handle on the watercolors!
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    This is just outstanding Caesar. I feel like this painting keeps contradicting itself; the style is so loose and free for a subject that seems so stiff and concrete, and the colors are just bright and lively, such that this fruits seems like a meal someone is, or is about to, partake in, not merely some props used for a painting subject. They swirl with such vibrant hues and reflect a magical sense of light that they themselves almost seem alive. I can certainly smell and taste them right now though from just looking at this masterful image! Well done my dear Caesar
