    still life with grapefruit

    The theme must be still life tonight funny how those cycles come around. I was playing with oil brushes and thinner and these fruits and veggie just came out of nowhere... well my brain I guess. so I went with it. Then I brought out some sticker brushes and painted over the fruit sketched with thin oil. Along the way I relocated some fruit pieces with the handy lasso and polygonal selection tools. No reference... I think I should probably look for a grapefruit picture online and then I may have to adjust it for more accuracy, but for now it is what it is.

    Wowww.... this is awsome, Gz... see... when we do not have any refs... we just unleash every grain of inspiration and fantasy with a grain of reality... and these kind of pieces are born... wonderful palette and i love the rake pen or brush whatever it is.... and fruit ...oh...nothing is boring and dry... juice of the fruit is just oozing out from the brushes....clapping... hopping... screaming... yeah...i am a good girl...so they say...love this into pieces...looks so classical media like awwwwwwwsome ,Gz.

    thanks AT-TA! much appreciated. It was strange... I didn't know I even knew what fruit somewhat looked like but I must have some inner vision of it from experience I guess. those are supposed to be chopsticks...darn I was hoping they looked that way. Now you may ask why I put in chopsticks... I have no idea. perhaps it is Asian grapefruit.

    I have a few new brushes I made. One that I used was an old one I made called crosshatch. The other is a new brush I made called loaded scattered I think. I think you will love some of my new painting brushes. would you like to play with them?

    oops sorry I accidentally deleted my first comment.
