Orange and Mango
7" x 5" Oil on linen.
Happy New Year! It is a slow start to the new year in the studio. Other projects have consumed my time, but here is a little warm up sketch.
The mangoes were a bust on the eating aspect, but they are very pretty. I think I would like this setup painted bigger and with a very wide format. The partially peeled orange is a popular subject on the interwebs and I can see why. The texture and variation are interesting and capturing the orange color is also a surprising challenge.
