Cantaloupe Wedges – 6" x 8" Oil on Canvas Panel SOLD

This composition has been floating around in my head for awhile. Cantaloupe is a very interesting fruit, in that the muted rind has such a bright green edge that runs along the orange flesh. The wedges and triangular shadows also add interest. The blue plate was found at a local Goodwill. So with this new prop and a fresh cantaloupe everything came together.
