Eggplant Daily Oil Painting


5" x 7" (15.3cm x 10.2cm)
Oil on panel

I can't remember ever eating eggplant, but I picked this one up while hunting for things to paint in the produce section. I thought it would be interesting to paint, and it was. By placing it in a cool grey environment, I wanted to contrast the dark violet undertones of the eggplant with the blue greys of its surroundings.
