Good painting is never about copying something - it's about drilling down to the essence of the subject and finding a way to translate that into paint. Rendering granite - the slab these fruits are resting on - is an especially satisfying challenge; how can I present the illusion of stone containing thousands of tiny crystals without trying to portray each and every detail?

This is painted on a prepared block of poplar wood, and set in a deep-format black frame; please see below for an image.
