While my style is almost diametrically opposed to yours, Mark, I'm still in absolute awe of your skill. Stunning work!

Re: Fruits

quite stunning, but you did not explain what the new "technique" was that you tried! I think that would be most helpful and interesting to me as a reader on WC who is viewing your work.

Glad you wrote that. Painting realistic doesn't have to mean that slavishly copying a photo is the ultimate dream. Theres a place for photography, and a place for painting, and often they overlap, but one is not the other. A still life is about color, form, but as you say also feeling the textures, the smoothness of metal, the wetness of a washed fruit... Your painting is lovely in all respects - value, color harmony, composition... I love your reflected highlights.
