Green Olives 2


Green Olives 2 - Oil on canvas. This was a one stroke per color challenge. Interesting. I'm pretty sure I cheated on more than one occasion but it certainly does make every stroke count ~ which I'm sure is the point. I wont even post my second attempt at this technique. It was 3 strawberries. I struggle with those anyway in that the green tops always look cheesy and I havent concluded how to approach the little seeds in keeping with the integrity of impressionism.

Green Olives

I am sooo happy with the way these turned out! Working on looser, yet deliberate strokes is getting me where I want to be artistically.
