Summer strawberries and champagne

Summer is Here

by Neilnap773

JUNE2017 Open Challenge-All Medians Contest Entry 
With Wimbledon coming up a still life of succulent strawberries accompanied with a fresh glass of Champagne just seemed to be the appropriate subject to paint.
The use of pan pastels to sketch the image that i had taken myself following a basic set up of the scene (YES..I ate the strawberries and drank the Champagne after the photo was taken ..hic !! )
The base layer of acrylic was then administered followed by the Griffin Alkyd fast drying oils with a little glaze mix for achieving a little depth in the presentation. Hope you enjoy...as i did the content mmmm yummy
The painting was completed on the 12th June 2017
