Apricots in a Blue Bowl Watercolor Painting

December was a bit of a slow month for me, so I was able to be fairly prolific when it came to painting.  Because I don’t have a dedicated space and have to lug everything out, the setting up process of painting often prevents me from putting paint to paper.  So, as long as I was painting the Easter scene for the Glenmary Easter Appeal, I had time to do other paintings as well!

Again, I painted these apricots based on a photo I found on Flickr.  I am drawn to painting fruit, and I liked the composition and the reflectiveness of the bowl.  In the painting, I really like my thumbnail sketch that I did to determine the values of the painting.

    You should make a studio in the open space of your old room at home
