"Hanging On", oil painting from life

"Hanging On", oil painting from life, 6 x 6"
Day four of Carol Marine's workshop and I was beginning to get what she was trying to teach us -I think! Several of the students took photos of my pear, so I guess that was a good sign. It was great fun to try to capture all the colour and value shifts I saw, in the fewest number of brushstrokes.
Workshop Lesson #5: I need to decide what in a scene is important to me, and me alone. When I am successful at capturing that, my personal style will appear. We each should struggle to find our own way with practice and honest critique, working towards 'loving it' ourselves.
