So I'm still plugging away at the oil painting. Sometimes feels like I'm painting with my left hand (I'm right-handed). Still getting used to things. I learned that Mars Black is better than Ivory Black for alla prima. Trying different approaches. My friend and I painted this pineapple. We both agreed it was an excruciating experience. Pineapples are hard!! This is the second attempt at Mr. Pineapple. Attempt #1 is too embarrassing to show. I mean, really embarrassing. We had a hearty laugh. Curse you pineapple!!!!!!
