Pear and Plum

Oil on Canvas 10"x8"
I did this painting over two half day sessions, so it sort of qualifies as a painting in a day. I used a generous amount of oil, and as a result, it has somewhat of a juicy appearance. The fruit was lit by sunlight, creating shadows that are quite dark in contrast to the highlights. Working in sunlight is my preferred method for painting.
