I feel “Peachy” about this painting!

Hi friends! I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving yesterday (or a lovely week if you don’t celebrate it.) We had a wonderful day vising family and feasting on good food! One of my all-time favorite foods is actually peaches and nectarines. Maybe that’s why I liked painting this so much?

I have a real-time lesson of this painting up now in Critique Club. The real-time lesson is over 2 hours long but it is broken up into 10 smaller parts so you can fit in the project as you have snippets of time. It also makes it more manageable I think so you don’t get overwhelmed. Critique Club is a membership group where you have access to 70 in-depth art lessons (with 2 additional lessons added each month!) creative prompts and the ability to upload your artwork for feedback from me. It’s only $5 a month and you can cancel anytime. Learn more or enroll here.

Here is the timelapse version:

At the time of posting Blick has Derwent Colorsoft 50% off as well as the Derwent Inktense pencils, Inktense blocks, Pastel pencils, and XL Watersoluble Charcoal sets and XL Watersoluble Graphite sets! I haven’t really seen any other great Black Friday deals for art supplies (that are worth buying) but that sure is a good deal if you are looking for any of those products. Happy crafting!
