More Nectarines Paintings and New Artist to Admired

I enjoy painting nectarines. Their coloring is so similar to human skin so I see it as great practice for painting skins. Another goal I have is to challenge myself to paint the nectarines or fruits in general juicy as if the viewer is ready to pluck them off a tree.

These paintings will be available for sale in my Etsy shop.

I’m a fan of Pinterest. There I find all sort of inspirations and new artists that I would not normally come across. Right now I’m painting a dog portrait of my nephew’s bull dog. Such a charmer though lacking in the beauty category. To be inspired I went into Pinterest and found this painting by Sandra Flood. I love her simple yet elegant composition. Many of her paintings are like that; not too much background. She’s basically a self-taught artist. Here’s her website to explore more of her works on her website

Next week I’ll post some progression paintings of my nephew’s bull dog. . .
