Candy apple and more

I'm slowly getting back into painting. Here are a few I've been working on. The first two are based on images from the R.I.L and the third is my own.

Candy apple 9x12in.


Cherries in jug 11x14in.


Sprouting onion 11x14in.

Lillian. I am so pleased you are painting again. Your work is so beautiful. These are three terrific paintings. My favourite is the onion - great against that dark background.

These are all great. The candy apple looks especially gooey. Convincing metal in the second, and I'm with everyone else..the onion is super!

Thank you Howard, Chammie, Wassie and Cem!
These are mostly practice pieces painted on reclaimed canvases but it feels good to be out of a slump and painting again.
