This canvas is tiny - about 2"x2". I wanted to make the red of the strawberry really stand out so I made the background a very dark green (red's compliment).
I blocked in the colors that I wanted the berry to be.
I then added a little definition and highlights. It needed depth - so I gave it some extra shading on the left top side.
I brightened up the highlights - added a few teeny seeds and voila - The tiniest painting of a strawberry I've ever seen.
This painting - as well as quite a few others are for sale in my etsy store: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=24510963
