Pen and Pencil with Acrylic Watercolour Gouache (original size: length of cheese a bit smaller than my hand print).
All along I had planned to do a traditional still-life painting of different shades of orange fruit, even going out buying a grapefruit, some peaches and a nectarine but as you can see, I chose something rather more cheesy instead. In fact, we were at wonderful little local cheese shop the other day where I sampled some lovely crumbly bright "red" Leicester cheese. Having been yonks since that was on my palette, I kept relishing its memory through the week whilst also enjoying the small slab of divine Welsh cheese duly purchased.
This image crystallized in my head later, as I thought about the various weights (of life) we carry. While some are hard, they are worth it too.. rather like Leicester Mouse here might agree. :)
OK, time to catch up with the rest of the ORANGE musings over on CREATIVE TUESDAYS!
