Figs Suck - An Art Challenge

This is my first attempt at doing a plate of figs (see Wanda's Challenge here.) Figs are not my friend.

I tried to do the figs a second time....

Worse than the first, but I'm not going to continue trying. I've had enough of figs, thankyouverymuch.

(done with oil pastels, should you be wondering.)

Crusty ~~ I don't think your figs suck...I think they look quite appetizing!

Never tried oil pastels. Wish I could get past watercolors, and try something new. Of course I would have to go out and buy stuff, so guess I'll stick with what I know!

I like them too, the oil pastels give a different look. I think I haven't tried them yet because Wanda's was so fantastic, I don't think I can get anything that will even look like a fig. But I'll give it a try soon.

Hiya Crusty,

I often look in on Wanda's page and arrived here.

I know you say you've had enough of them, but I just put up a photo of my figs, for you to take a look at. You will see that you captured yours very well indeed, It struck me that you managed to get the smug plumpness of your average fig beautifully, especially in the top picture.
I put the address of my figs in my name. (By all means zap this comment if you like).

Yes, I agree, a lovely rendering of figs
but I know the frustration of trying...most of my drawings are half done!

Rudee said...

Ah...but figs are so good when they're soaked in vodka.

thx for the comments guys. I think Rudee has a good suggestion... vodka certainly can't hurt, right?

I kept thinking about trying to draw the figs and even tried one time; then tore it into bits and pieces and tossed it in the trash can. Then I spit on it.
