Fresh Picked Peach Still Life Painting


Fresh Peach and Salvaged Tile – 6" x 6" Oil on Canvas Panel SOLD

This is one of many peaches picked from a “pick your own fruit” place we visited with our friends Evie & Jon from this past weekend. Steve and I had a great time catching up and relaxing.

For this painting I experimented with my new round synthetic bristle brushes. It was fun learning use to this new shape. Sometimes I would look down at the brush and realize that I had “shaped” it into a more filbert-like point, instead of reveling with the pointy-ness of the round, oh well, with time I will learn to be comfortable with them…

Thanks Theresa! Your comments mean a lot to me. I really like complimentary color paletts and with the varied colors of the peach, I feel it can work better than just a straight complimentary duo between background and main object.
