Quince still going Strong

Fragrant Quince
Painting size 15" x 11"





Earlier this month I posted my first quince painting and detailed my process using one fresh quince. This strange to me fruit has really surprised me because nearly three weeks later he is looking as strong as ever but now has a really lovely aroma. I have been struggling this week with my mojo so I turned to Quince and once again he modelled for me to create another painting this time in portrait format. We are going away for just a few days and I hope the change to my routine will recharge my batteries and I will be right back into creating next week.

  1. Your quinces are lovely...I adore that rich quince scent as they get really ripe. I just wish they weren't quite so hard to peel. Once again the birds got all of ours, I don't mind sharing a few but all? And my persimmons, figs etc! Mrs A
