Small Crock and a Peach - 6" x 6" - Oil on Canvas - 

First day of school, getting everyone back in a routine and lunch with the girls, so I was a bit crunched for time.  I grabbed one of the peaches that I used yesterday and a small crock that I have in my collection of still life props.  In hindsight I suppose I could have been a bit more inventive with the set up and propped the lid up on the side of the crock or something.  Oh well, live and learn.  
Today's lesson . . . .transparent earth red is really lovely for the reddish brown colour in the crock pot!
Just glad that I managed to squeak one in today.  I don't want to fall behind.  :)


  1. Your peach looks fuzzy and perfectly ripe. Great painting. I too am journeying in art hoping to paint yards and yards of canvas...or pastel paper...with 500 starts! (Heard that from an artist) Good luck...day 4 tomorrow.

  2. You have a gift for painting great peaches. Love the soft texture next to the sheen of the crock.
    thanks for visiting my blog.
