Three Apricots – 4" x 6" (10.2 x 15.25 cm) – Oil Canvas Panel
This summer apricots are my personal project to figure out how to paint them in a painterly and convincing manner. I am drawn to the pale orange/yellow and how the fuzzy, matte finish will sometimes catch light in places contrary to the way shade and shadow fall on spherical shapes under normal conditions.
