Thanks Skinny, Marge, Del, Janet, Digi, Barry, Kareen, Jean, Joel, Aggie and Kirk...:D. I missed you all. I missed you all.:heart: Missed the great artwork by you. I visited WC sometimes during the break but didnot have enough time to comment. Now I am back, will phlood around.........hehe.

It took me a bit longer than usual. Almost a week, I was pretty frustrated while doing this due to texture of berries. But glad to get trough.:D

Del, first I layed the simple layer of reds with tones. When I was done with shading, I applied the yellow dots/ the texture of strawberries. Did this a bit loose but when I resized the painting to post here, it appeared photorealistic..hehe.:D

Here is a closeup so you can see the brush strokes. Forgot to mention that I tried clumpy brush this time. Still adventuring with painter brushes.

Thanks Kareen. I paint at 72 or 96 resolution. Usually I paint at 12" x 16" and 16" x 24".

Delicious strawberries, beatiful work as usually.

Nice to see you posting, Maria.
Such a pretty name you have. My mother's name was Marie, as is my middle name, almost the same as yours:)

Welcome back Marie! I apologize for not knowing you were gone as I have been too busy to frequent and post here lately.

I thought this was the ref photo and that you goofed and forgot to post the painting.

GOOD LORD WOMAN! This is just downright AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!! Had you not told in another post it was a painting, I would never have know the difference. WOW.
