One of my friends (client too) living in US had a vacation in Greece a couple of years ago, and when she saw a tree full of figs while taking a walk outdoor she couldn't resist the temptation to pick a few of them. She didn't take into account that figs have a strong laxative effect, and you can imagine what followed after enjoying the delicious fruits!!! Thus, take care when you see the fresh figs in front of you, as you must seriously consider the consequences!
I have done two small ACEO paintings of figs, and I think I will go for a larger painting too very soon. These are both about 2.5x3.5 inches in size, and are done with W&N and Daniel Smith watercolor on Arches White 140 lb CP paper.
