My submission for the July Challenge "A Day Not Wasted" website, this is from a photo, Lee took from the Santa Barbara Mission, I painted in oil on a 20 by 16 canvas. Details of the challenge can be found on his website.
I painted this picture of a Red Snapper for the Art in Agriculture Show at the State University in Corvallis, it was subsequently bought and added to their permanent collection. It is in oil on a 16 by 20 canvas.
I took a shot at the cherries, published by Rookiepainter's Blog, details at her website. The painting is done in oil on a 8 by 10 canvas panel, lots of delicate reflections to contend with, but fun to paint.
