The fruit is actually a peach, but I was talking to Ree on the telephone while I was painting this, and we were joking about nectarines, peaches and my Chookooster. (You had to be there) I had two references, and they were very yummy, thank you very much!
The background is a mixture of viridian and white ragged on top of a light apple green background. I don't know what on earth possessed me, as I hate green! I have some gold acrylic paint, that I use for rubbing onto picture frames, and I rubbed some onto the board. It looks quite neat actually.
Painted with acrylics, on a 5"x7" canvas board, and I will frame it in a gold frame I have here. The colour is almost right, but not quite. Hard to take photo's at night, especially of acrylics. That light area inside the stalk, does not look anything like that in person. The white highlight on the stalk, isn't stark like that either. Oh well, you get the picture. I worked on my two oils some more, and I am liking them so far. I will take a photo tomorrow.
