Glass, Water and Apple Oil on Board 5 x 7 inches. All this week, I've been working on a very large Black Bear painting, it's almost finished. Yesterday I decided I should take some time to brush up with a daily small painting and so the painting, Glass, Water and Apple was created. I'm happy with the outcome of yesterday's efforts, but it took too long to capture the glass. I scraped it off three times to re-paint before getting it rendered to look like a glass of water. I learned again the lesson that less is more. It only takes one bad brush stroke to ruin a painting full of good ones. Here is a close up shot with my cell phone. I finally ordered my 16 megapixel camera and expect it to be delivered early March.
