Orange Slice

Sold

This was nice to paint in that it allowed for focusing on the translucent quality of the orange. Plus there is a different light source direction with this one as well.

Another food piece. Painting still lifes is much fun, but an extra little perk is when you paint food, there's a bit of tasty reward at the end. :)

For this piece, I used a combination of brush strokes and palette knife-work, which lent a great feel to the painting. Worked on this painting a tad longer than I'd planned, but in the end the extra effort was well worth it.

Enjoy!

I set a time limit for this one and more or less stuck to it. Also, before beginning the painting, I decided what I wanted to accomplish with it within that time frame... probably something I should do more often.

I'm trying to get more of these paintings finished and posted on a regular basis, so more soon.

I painted quite a lot of this with a palette knife, although it may not be very obvious. I thought using a certain knife technique for the left kiwi half could work out well, and then I thought why not continue on with that in other areas of the painting (mainly in the other kiwi half and foreground). The main knife techniques were patting the paint on in a quick stacatto motion, incising with the sharp edge of the knife, and sort of troweling the paint on parallel to the painting surface.

This was a tasty one and very refreshing. You can't beat a good slice of watermelon during these hot dog days of summer.
