I enjoyed painting these colours, fresh and clean. I liked the shadows – so much in them, also the harmony of colours and the challenge of a cut in half fruit, first one I’ve tackled! You have to really question what colour is that? And also tone, yellow is tricky as you tend to paint it too light. So I make sure the darks are dark enough without being dirty.
I also made sure my edges were varied with some soft and some crisp. I liked encorporating a bowl with the fruit, fun to paint. I hope my students will enjoy this too 🙂
I put this painting up against one I did in January, no.7 quite a different!
