Fruit Basket - oil

The plein air group met again at the arts center to paint inside today. Actually, it was probably warm enough to paint outside today, but we had already planned on painting a still life of fruit. Since we only meet for 2 hours, you have to get right into it and push through and get it done! I felt I was having some difficulty, but looking back at this photo, I like it. It needs some refining, but it will need to dry a bit. That is one thing I notice with oils, I want to get it done all in one sitting, but it won't cooperate!

As you can see, I'm a lefty! Bill was kind enough to take a photo while I worked of my painting and of the subject matter.
