Two Peaches

(Click for a larger view.)
12" x 12" Oil on canvas.

I have been spending much of my painting time on the large Dragon Boat painting.(See the updated post below.) I am sticking to working on it during daylight, so I found time the last two evenings to paint this vibrant still life. I wanted to play with some unconventional cropping and close up detail. I carefully set this up to avoid symmetry within the square format. The two day process let the underpainting dry some so that I could build a little transparent glazing.

I also painted the sides of the deep gallery wrap canvas dark, so this is ready to hang without a frame.
