Welcome to the New Year! - WIP - Fruit on steamer basket

Finally getting back onto the blog.  Have not painted as much in 2017 - but will try to do better in 2018!

Here is a the beginning painting of fruit on my steamer basket; lots of patterning which I love.
Traced out and ready to start.

First thing, as usual, wet the paper and splash in some red, yellow and blue.  I’m using 300# Arches.
