Another fast sketch.  Although the flowers are the stars, I really like the pear and apple.

Oil on linen
6 x 8

I have been doing quick painting sketches lately. This is one of them and so were the two previous posts.  I really enjoy being fast and not fussing too much with the details. While the drawings might not be so perfect. They have a more painterly feel.

Oil on linen on panel
6 x 6

I am trying to be looser and more painterly in my style.  I think this one is a huge improvement on that criteria. I am going to keep working on this, it is much harder than one might think.  I also love the blue cloth so you might be seeing a lot of this background in the near future.
