Plate of Figs
When figs first appeared in the market last month, I thought $7.98 a pound was too much to pay. Now they are more abundant and the price has been reduced, so I bought some to paint. After I finished painting, I ate them with honey. Yum.
I used a different brush today, a bright, very stiff. My usual go-to brush is a filbert, very smooth, and the paint goes on like butter. But I'm trying to paint more loosely, so I changed my brush. I liked some of the effects I got, but I found it very difficult to mix paint with the brush.
