Holiday Sale #5: Italian Fruit Market

I've been excited to post about this one! I felt proud of the accomplishment of finishing this one honestly. There was just so much involved and it took quite awhile. Also, I felt like it turned out like I had thought it could when I stared and stared at the photo before finally jumping in. There was something about the photo that just kept making me pause. It was in a stack of photos of Italy, sandwiched in between these awesome buildings and Venetian reflections, which were more the things I was looking to paint. But this jumble of fruit just wanted to be painted too. It kinda proved to me that those magnificent scenes were beautiful, but so was this mismatch of produce. I love that beauty can be found everywhere, even in the ordinary! Thank goodness for that! Italian Fruit Market is a 15 x 20 watercolor on watercolor paper.
