I needed to paint these before they became too ripe or were eaten, whichever came first. The grayish film that covers a plum also seems to fade over time, that or too many folks have been handling them and rubbing it off.
I really enjoyed my approach to getting the translucent deep red of the plums and also trying to get the fuzz of the peach without looking moldy. This was my first time using a well toothed masonite board rather than the canvas boards I've been using. Great stuff that! I'll definitely be using that more often.
