Thankyou Emma Lee and Gita. It was a bit of a struggle getting back into the acrylics after a while away from them, but I'm glad I persisted.

Hi everyone,

Here is my second attempt at highlighting my strawberries. I have had a difficult time with the highlights and hope it becomes easier.

Your strawberries are coming a long well. Those highlights are bringing them to life.

Thank you everyone, I did not think it looked to good at first but looking at it from the photo, I can see how the highlights bring it to life. Now I will work on the upper one.

Thanks everyone.

Nolan, how should the top strawberry be finished? Or are you just referring to the shadows, when you say, "keep going?"

Here is a photo of my strawberry painting with shadows. Actually I have painted the shadows twice. I am not happy with how they look.  I need more shadow practice if anyone knows of a particular drawing for this let me know.
