Fruit Cocktail



The compressed space in this painting is full of activity making this painting energetic and colorful. I worked all day long on a painting only to wipe it out and start again. This painting fell together fairly quickly after the labor intensive failure. There was a ground of red as the underpainting which adds a warm glow.

Great composition and luscious colors! I like how you've painted the corners to keep the eye moving toward the focal point.
