Happy Strawberry Day!! While I did already paint a strawberry for chocolate fondue day, I thought it would be fun to just try a strawberry itself this time, and used a different method to achieve the lighting and shadows on this one. This is one of those paintings that I thought didn’t look great when I finished, until I later looked at the photos. One thing I always like to do in my workshops is encourage my students to always take photos of their work! They may hate it now, and then later look back and realize it was pretty good!
