I was experimenting with better ways to express a pinecone, and these were the most successful. The key is to lay down color, warm (more yellow) for the lighted side, cool (more blueish)for the shadowed side. When it’s dry, life out the color of the tips of the cone and then added the darks to give it shape. That’s the hard part for me!

So who’s your favorite singer?  I’m partial to the soprano….
