Daily Painting Practice - Summer Melon

If this study worked out I thought this might make a good larger painting. I started with painting in Alizarin Crimson on a dry toned canvas board.
I thought an over the shoulder view would be fun to try. Here I am laying in the darks.
Then starting in on the color. Keeping it fluid and transparent...
and getting more opaque as I go along.
I even have proof that I can change brushes. ( That's only because I was aware of taking the photos.)

Nothing is better than painting then eating a juicy summer melon. Or should that be tasting then painting??
