On with the 30/30 Daily Painting Challenge: Strawberry Still Life

6"x6", Oil on stretched canvas
What I love about making daily paintings is the variety. Since the paintings are smaller and finished in one day (that's why it's called daily painting, duh!) I get to paint a lot of different things, and every time I can choose if I paint from photo, from life, or plein air.

This strawberry was from life, and I got to find out that it's not as easy to paint as it may seem!  But that was part of the fun.
I ended up watching a couple of videos on youtube about painting strawberries, and I have to say it helped a lot. In particular they made me see how important the little seeds and the reflections are to make it look "strawberrish". :)
