View Full Version : End of a Phase?

This is 8x8 on Canson MT, Rembrandt soft pastels and Derwent pastel pencils and is based on a photo from the Internet. I believe this is the end of my berry phase, and unless someone has suggestions for improvement, I'm calling it done and hanging it in the kitchen next to my strawberry and my blueberries paintings. This was fun and a challenge with all those berry bumps! As always, the colors in the photo aren't exactly right but as close to the painting as I could get.

Love those lush blackberries! Great fade on the leaves and unripe ones creating depth in the painting, the ripe ones push out toward me and make my mouth water! Those are so delicious!

Thank you so much maryinasia, Blayne, Donna, Jay and Rob for your encouraging words. I'm still loving the pastels and I learn something new with each painting I do. This one was painting #12.
