Honeysuckle fruits have a 'jewel' like quality which I tried to capture, there is a translucency in the vibrant reds but with dark shadows but I overworked it on the right hand. Not sure if this was because I was rushed or because of the bad light, anyway I decided to call it a day and abandon the unfinished piece. Normally if this happens I scrap the work and start again but that's not possible for this challenge. I always think if it's not going to plan I will always be able to spot the defects and think it's quicker to start over than try to fix.
