Here's my next painting, I'm still in the drawing stage. This will be 16 x 20 on gallery wrapped canvas.

I don't have a title yet, I think that will come with time. It isn't Kona coffee, we live in the district of K'au in Hawaii.

Here is where I am now, 2 days and 10 hours into the painting.

I know that I need to lighten the red beans where the light is shining. Please provide constructive criticism, I am planning on entering this into a competition next month!

Thanks,
Megan

That is so good already. The depth to this is amazing. It just keeps going back. I love the diagonal. Compositionally this is very strong.

Hi. Relatively new to the acrylic forum (usually spend time in CP). I think you've done a great job with this. I love the "coffee". Keep going!! Can't wait to see the finished product.

Here's the next installment. I brightened up the sunlit coffee cherries.

I'm hoping that the differences between the first and second installment are noticable! Next thing I'm working on is the delineation between where the sunlight falls and the shadows. I think that will make the difference, and this bottom leaf needs a lot of work...

Thanks for your help guys, I want to make this a fabulous painting!

Here is where it stands now... it's even signed! Please, any major issues I need to address?

I'm sorry about the glare... This painting was a lot of fun!

Congratulations Megan, you have taken the photo and made it into a work of art - great enhancements - the texture on those leaves is so real. You have caught the light superbly - I can taste those sweet coffee beans. Good luck with the competition.
