My Crystal Bowl

A Crystal Bowl and Strawberries was one of the projects my Painting Friends were creating on their painting holiday, Splash!

Although I couldn't make it to Florida, Mollie kindly provided me with a photo of the drawing to copy; from there I have painted this version of the crystal bowl with strawberries.

I have to thank Mollie Jones - she's an absolute star. If you'd like to visit her blog, go HERE

and here is my painting:

  18. That is beautiful. I am amazed at the look of the crystal. It looks so shiny and real. It makes one want to just reach in and grab a handful!

    The bowl with the strawberries look wonderful. Especially in warm weather, the painting looks so refreshing.
    This way of painting seems to you very well.
