Lemon with a strawberry

Oil on cardbox
Late evening practice, had to limit the time, going to work next day, maybe in a way was good, think it took one to two hours with adding more this afternoon.
Btw the lemon is organnical grown, so waxy with just a weak hightlight, maybe got it stronger here than is is.

Antique Glass Mini Study


8x9 cm oil
Do a little and do it the best or what ever you can, have been my strategi to get back on track or keep going, while having a job to see to and takes a good amount of energy.
And it could be added get the most with the least effort.
The little piece of card here was an experiment with texture and a toning which was a grey over white.

 One more on the way

Hellerup Strand, Maj Aften

 18x20 cm, oil Hellerup Strand Maj Aften (evening)

Have been missing to make a landscape and something with summer, I took this photo 2018 by the end of may and remember it to be one the first summerdays. I have been hesitating and in doubt I could do it. So with all the time renewed revised materials and techniques I thought I give it a go. And it was quite a challenge and a lot of work. A photo always skews the values, especially with a contrasty scene as this (darks are too dark and light is too light) so it took a lot of  tweeking to make it work.
