Mixed Fruit 11x14 oil

Well here is another fruit painting using the left over fruit from breakfast and lunch while in Ojai. The set up on this is odd with four to one groupings, but oh well. I continued to work with the Cynthia Grilli palette. New for me is using mediums and glazes and letting things dry. I didn't let things dry all the way, but enough. The medium of dammar varnish, linseed oil and turpentine helped with the drying time. I go back to class tomorrow to learn more on this. It has been fun experimenting.
