If you don't know what to paint, get a couple of apples or pears, a piece of white fabric and voila! Easy. I will never get tired of painting apples or pears. Always something new to see in their form. It took me a while to see greys where the stem is located. It is not going to look real without those greys. I have to admit that I bought a couple of greys (warm and cool) from Gamblin oil colors, and I absolutely love them. I heard from so many people not to do that and mix your own. Oh well, I'll take anything that saves me time. Honestly, I just love Gamblin's greys.
