Strawberries and Crystal Watercolor

Finally finished!


This took a while. Painting the crystal really just requires patience, and to believe what you are seeing. Yes, the colors are really that bright or that dark..and there are those strange little flicks of color from the prism affect. What really got me with this one was the strawberries... I wasn't sure just how to get those depressions created by each seed, and the highlights, and the right color. I saw strawberries when I closed my eyes to sleep, and had several strawberry dreams before I was finished. It's done now, and I will have it framed and ready for the showing on Friday evening.
