Pineapple: April 20, 2007

I have decided to create a "Painting a Day". Being responsible to produce something every day and to post it will motivate me to stop giving excuses for not painting.
This is my first one: "Pineapple". I was looking for something quick and easy for my first "Painting a Day" painting. I chose the pineapple on my kitchen counter. I began by drawing on 4"x6" 140lb. watercolor paper.
Soon after beginning the drawing, I realized that a pineapple is not so simple but is a very complex object. I gave up drawing and went directly to painting. This worked much better for me.
"Pineapple" was painted using Golden acrylic paints and was completed April 20, 2007. Sold.
