Mollie shared a strawberry photo with us at paintingfriends.com and did a demo on how she paints strawberries. Click her name to see her painting from the demo. Notice how clean and pristine her painting looks.
This little painting still has misket on it. There is more to do, such as painting (fixing) the stems and lifting some too dark areas. Still have to put in some seed areas and lift some lights. Over all though I have had loads of fun painting this. It is a challenge for me to work with red, to get good values so the painting reads right even in grayscale. The other challenge is painting those stems so they look like stems and not a gobbledygook mess lol.
