Fresh Slice

Oil Painting Watermelon Fruit Still Life Art Food Garden

Oil on stretched canvas, 8" x 10"

A slice of watermelon from a melon in my garden was a terrific subject for a still life. The most fun was painting the grooves or "sockets" containing the seeds. Lots of juicy paint was applied while I was painting this. Sometimes working fast with a loaded brush does just what I want and I think I should try it more often. We planted several varieties of watermelon this year and I'm pretty sure this was a "Congo". And in case you're interested, yes, it was very sweet!.
