30 days of painting Day 29

Still life with Watermelon and Daffodils
16" x 20"
oil
I felt proud of myself today. I normally paint no larger than 8" x 10". Today I totally got out of my comfort zone with a big 16" x 20" format. I still had daffodils from my previous (Day 27) painting, so I arranged the rest of my composition around them. (Can you believe my back yard daffodils are sill blooming?) I spent my whole day painting. I think I'll order bigger panels. It was challenging to paint bigger. I still used the same synthetic brush that I use for my 6" x 6" paintings, and it worked fine.
