Fruit Bowl



Fruit Bowl

6x6in  oil on canvas board  $100. SOLD

I enjoyed all the colors yesterday so today I rearranged all the parts...
on a smaller "square"  no less!
Going for another one tomorrow.

Artist Note.

Working within a square worked best when I lowered my viewpoint
and placed a knife and leaf at an angle to offset the  horizontal
lines..

    1. The arranging is a favorite part of the painting for me. Libby. I use my handy tool to take off complete areas if it doesn't 'feel' right. Thanks for the visit.

    1. It is an important area and I really appreciate you noticing it, Roger. I find you, also, are able to have a full composition and still have a rhythmic flow around it.

  9. I love your rich reds, pinks, and oranges in this painting Julie. Especially how the spots of color relate in the back grouping of peaches and cherries! That spot of pink is delicious!
