8 x 10 in
Oil on Belgium Linen Panel
I started with a dry brush approach, I used burnt umber and no medium.
Then I just filled in the middle tone darks, not going too dark.
Then I added the local colors to the star fruit, not blending everything to perfection at this stage. I am just stating the correct colors in their correct placements.
Then I added the background and went in the edges of the star fruit to push some areas back and bring some forward.
I then started to add details to the wood, which also gives it some movement in a subtle way.
