Day 28 - A Plum Deal!

I must admit to painting plums before but this time the view is overhead, I am fond of this particular viewpoint!
This was done on a black ground today. I had some paint left from my tulip painting, the pinks I mixed with white gesso and prepared a couple of boards and I used some of the turquoise in this painting. I am now using Chroma Brushcleaner and it is cleaning the turquoise off completely! I slept like a log last night so am refreshed today!

An Artist is born - my brother's little granddaughter painting in my studio for the first time, on Sunday! I love the way she dips the brush in water then dabs off the excess - I did that just before I handed her the brush - she was obviously watching my every move! I have never posted a video before, I hope the quality is okay!
