Papaya Still Life

Papaya – 5” x 7” Oil on Canvas Panel SOLD

I have been meaning to paint a papaya for awhile; I am very fascinated with pink-orange flesh of the fruit and the dark berry-like seeds. So this is my first attempt. In painting this fruit I learned that is more than what I had originally thought. I like how there is a dark green outline that surrounds the flesh of the fruit. How the color and tone change depending on how close or far away it is from the green rind.
