My first Fruit & Veg series was with my original medium of choice pastels.   Working with pastels, I learned how to be patient and layer colors to get the richness and fullness of a shape. I eventually switched to water soluble oils to eliminate the need for spray fix . With the water soluble oils, I completed my second series of Fruit & Veg using a medium which drys faster than traditional oils to layer colors to create depth and radiance.
