I Was Disappointed...

"Three Plums"
Oil on Canvas, 8x10," c. Catherine Vines
... In the plum in my last posting, (See "Three Fruits.") so I decided to concentrate on just plums.
The two fruits in the front row are defined by individual strokes, without overworking. 
The rear fellow was worked to death, poor guy; but I do like that flash of red.
I'm still fighting with my backgrounds. The almost watercolor look of the rear shadow is pretty cool though.
The process seems to be pick out what doesn't work and practice, practice, practice.
