Mango #1 Still Life Painting


Mango #1 – 6" x 8" – Oil on Canvas Panel – SOLD

I purchased three mangos recently and this is the first of them I painted. I really love how mangos have both red and green and how there are areas that they mix in color, where you see both the red and the green in the same area.

Here is a detail of the red area with scuffs and hightlights.

Hi Elizabeth,
Excellent mango! I like how the plain gray background really pops the mango, simple yet strong design.

Thanks Jennifer,

The gray background really allows the vibrant colors read.
