I haven't had my breakfast yet, so I really want to take a bite of that juicy melon.

Oh Carol, that is just beautiful. I can't believe it is just 12x12.

I thank you very much for yr coment and yr question...
I'm very much a allaprima painter. This one was painted a couple years ago.
I don't start with a tight drawing,,, just the basic shapes to know where the masses will evolve.. the one thing I'm always thinking is ... what the center of interest will be... everything else is the supporting players. I never detail everything out all over. And try to save the hardest lines, biggest change in values . And or most saturated color for the center,of interest... the star of the show.

Hope this is of some help.
