"Blackberries" --- n/a

So yesterday I talked about putting in the lights first and how that kept them from getting muddy. In this case I put in the darks first, and then the lighter parts of the shadows, getting lighter and lighter until I got to the ground and then the highlights. I think different orders work in different situations, and it has a lot to do with how much of each there is (light or dark), and how much contrast you're going for. Still experimenting with it and thinking of better ways to say what I mean. : )

I think you've said it just fine. Beautiful little berries.

Hi Carol
Your work has inspired me to start a "Daily Painters Blog." Your paintings are so fresh and spontaneous and you say so much without a lot of detail. Exactly what I am striving for. Love the berries.
