Technically, this is a finished piece. But I have quite a few issues with this painting so it doesn't feel finished.
In my painting class we worked on still lifes. I couldn't resist the gorgeous colors of the cabbage and citrus so I chose this scene (we could choose fish, mushrooms, and this).
These first few images are the parts of the painting that I'm really proud of. I love that green cabbage and tried for days to get it right. The paper is so textured and crunchy I just love it (inspired by this painting).
The grapes and the citrus were another favorite portion for me. I spent SO LONG on those grapes!
But, the final piece feels wrong to me. I need to finish it so that I can be proud-- the nice elements should be displayed but instead I just end up getting frustrated.
