Pink Grapefruit on Green 077

This is the second in my large scale fruit series. I did paint this one from life, which made it much easier. It was a bit difficult to draw so much larger than what I saw in life, but the colors that you can see when drawing from life are what really made the difference for me. This color combination is based on an earlier piece based on grapefruit as well. I really enjoy this mint green with the corals of the grapefruit.

  1. It is a great impressionistic painting. Next time, try and paint your subject at eye level. If you do a bird's eye view, then hang the painting on a wall, it will be an unnatural pose. In other words, you want to view the subject head-on not looking down at it. Nice job.
