So - I promised Victor a while ago that I would post this as soon as I got it done - better late than never!

Please click to see my step by step demo of Gala Apples in a Nantucket Basket. (http://artstudiosecrets.com/demonstrations/oil-painting-still-life-apples-in-a-nantucket-basket/)

Here's a picture of the painting and a detail shot of the basket:

Thanks for the compliment, Lillian. I actually have grown to sort of (maybe, kinda) like painting that basket. ;)

Beautiful work Cindy. And your site is so fun and full of solid information. I think you may be on to something with those virtual workshops. :thumbsup:

Cindy, I must say, this one just keeps getting better the more I look at it. Of course, it is almost ridiculous for me to give voice to something so glaringly obvious, but I must: The detail on that basket is nothing short of purely Scrumptious! This is a wonderful work; congratulations on producing such a fine piece! It reminds me very much of something Helen Van Wyk would have painted, really choice!

LOL Robert!

Thanks so much. Although - maybe a little judicious blurring here and there might help? :)

Todd - thanks! I think so, too. Could be the "wave of the future" to be able to take a painting class online... the first few have been wildly successful. I was so impressed with the resultant paintings! :clap: :clap:

Wow. High praise indeed. Thanks so much, Paul.

I can now tell you all that I have tried Cindy’s technique on painting baskets on a floral I am working on and it was so easy using her methods. I have never been able to achieve it before so its thanks Cindy. I see that you are going to be doing a painting workshop in May in the rose class, Garden Roses in a Mint Julep cup and I’m happy to tell you I have joined up for this class as my rendition of silver objects need a lot more study. I think I will learn a lot from this class.

Thanks
