A painting of a randam banana hanging around in the kitchen. I am trying to paint with fewer brush strokes, trying not to leave messy brush marks. I find bananas are good to practice that. They have simple form that curves naturally to suit the brush strokes, so you can paint the form with a few bold strokes and add the shadow on the lower side wet in wet with a little thiker and darker paint. Leave to dry and add a few brown spots plus the shadow, and it's done.
