While enjoying the beautiful scenery of the Finger Lakes recently, I did this painting of some wild blackberries that grow all over that area. Even though this was not one of my regular 20 minute sketches, I estimate it probably took about 30-40 minutes to paint. That little bit of extra time was put to use developing rich saturated colors, which just makes those lovely berries "pop." Watercolor, approx. 5 1/2" x 8".
