Grapefruit, Orange, Lime 12x9"

This week's Daily Paintworks Challenge is to paint some citrus fruits.  So I painted some.  Then I destroyed my painting with a dry paintbrush and repainted it.  Then I did it again.  Each time, I tried to leave some edges soft, and I tried to vary the color with each brush stroke. This "destroy and rebuild" technique is pretty fun-- you never really know how things will turn out!


  1. Neat as can be. I love your colors, Ann. They don't get muddy when you repaint after the distroy part. Beautiful!

  2. I really like this concept, Ann! It really emphasizes the "Don't fall in love" with any part of your painting. It encourages one to accentuate the important elements.
