"Four Eighths" --- SOLD
I finally got sick of the pitcher and apple. Anyone have a preference of the 5?
I find I really enjoy painting this way the most - several similar objects, usually fruit, from above, including shadows. I like the bright colors and the simplicity of it. It's what I always come back to after trying other things. It's my safety net.
One thing I learned with this one, is that if I dull down the background a bit, the bright orange really pops! So I just added a touch of red and yellow to my blue background to gray it down just a little. I think it's actually a little brighter here than in reality. It's so hard to capture the painting exactly with a camera.
