"Cracked Coconut"

It was quite a challenge cracking this coconut. It took a chisel, hammer and a lot of muscle to even break the surface. It was a cool challenge to paint, also. This is post number 221 for my Daily Painting blog.

Man, I can't believe nobody's commenting on this! I'm passing your blog around to get some views today! I like the brushwork here, and the balance of the neutrals.
