Rookie Painter Challenge

This is my first submission to the Rookie Painter challenge blog.  I loved the photo and wanted to try it.
I enjoyed working on the oranges.

Here is the original photo


  1. Julie, I like your painting, especially the drapery!

  2. Thanks Sylviane - I had a hard time with it as I haven't done many. My paint was dragging on the masonite. I am trying to figure out what is the issue with my gesso undercoat. I remembered to squint and try to see the shapes to paint which helped.
