Granny Green Apple & Strawberries

6" x 6"
oil on archival Gessobord

Glorious fruit! Is there anything more fun to paint than fruit? For the artist, fruit gives us a vast array of complementary colors, shapes, heights, etc., to arrange in various compositions. In this still life, oil painting, the lively color of the green Granny Smith apple next to luscious red strawberries make a striking combination. Sometimes it is hard for me to decide on a background color. I think the cool background softens the vivid colored fruit a bit.
