    Unfinished study

    Oil on rough canvas and one layer.
    With reference to Caravaggio's "Cesto di Frutta" (see also below), made this and tried some glazing method not visible here.
    It looks like the most promising is a to add a colour (either pure or in a toned down coloured grey version, depending on the effect You wish to get) on a new layer with thw hue blending mode.
    This is the untreated version though (I won't anticipate any possible surprising finishing I may possibly get in the future by glazes).

    Very interesting study, Caesar.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Dear Caesar, just love this, there is something about the colors, not as if you drew an orange or grapes or apple and filled them in with color, just the other way around, the puzzle pieces of color came together and formed the fruits and leaves, beautiful!

    Caesare, as everybody says: we believe in your abilities to create a masterpiece.. and this is going to be one... the fruit looks so mnummy... delicious already.... I am excited, that you have already started... as if i was a cocreator.. no... i am just a cheerful onlooker... and am so much looking forward to the next stage..., but do not hurry...every fruit needs its own time to ripen...and thumbs up....

    Looks great Caesar! Love the subdued colors. Looks very authentic. Did you try adjusting the "wash" layers opacity for the effect? Just curious. Fine job on this!
