FAT/Fat Sweet Juicy Fruit

They were fatter , but I got hungry while painting this. I
had to work fast, this piece just wouldn't have looked right
with just the cores and seeds-they're too skinny.

Great illo with that sense of juicy taste strongly appearing, well captured with the shapes and colours. Slurp!

The brush strokes seem to have an edible quality about them, quite bitey. Like the strands and streaks emanating from the friut. 'Spect everything's been eaten up by now.

These are gorgeous! I really like the agitated lines and strokes...is this becasue you were so hungry? The dark background gives this an old master's look, but you've given it a modern vibe...excellent job!

Not only are they making me salivate, these look they are breathing. Excellent.

Lou said...

Very rich, very alive, as if they're growing in front of me. The one on the right is so red it could be The Evil Queen's.
