In the style of Karin Jurick, who does gorgeous paintings, here's a small cherry pie slice done in oils on masonite. It's only 6" by 8", so I'd consider it a quickie painting, but it's one of my best so far, I think. The nice thing about working so small is that you can have your model right in front of you, and lay the masonite right on the drafting table in front of the model. So close you can smell the cherries, and really stick your nose in the colors and shadows. I will definitely do more of these small, quick studies.
