Denise,

Even before I saw your name on the message, I could tell this was yours.  I love the colors you use -- they make your work recognizable.

I love the satiny look of this piece.

 :thankyou: Mea and Mary Lou  :thankyou:
Mea, I think the satiny look is the result of the gold and silver acrylic paint.
Happy painting ladies!

Very lovely colours :clap: :clap: :clap: All that is really needed is the  shading on the bottom of the fruit to give it volume (rounding) O0
