Bag of Oranges--Original Oil Painting

Today's 8x8 inch oil painting on stretched canvas was a big challenge. Trying to create the semi-opaque quality of a plastic bag was definitely tricky. It is much more difficult to create the sense of the plastic bag than it is to paint glass. I will be pondering my approach to this painting and consider other approaches I might take when painting the subject again. Whether it will become an entry in my Small Impressions Gallery collection or not is still undecided.
