Here’s another oil sketch I did a few days ago, in one session. I'll be putting this into my sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project 2011. I enjoyed this composition so much that I’ll probably do a full blown painting of it at some point.
I love having the light diffuse off the right side after coming to a zenith on the point of the cantaloupe. On a finished painting I’ll have to really make the shadows sing which is a matter of playing with more colors and getting the values correct.
By the way, more dates have been added to the Sketchbook Project 2011 tour! For a full listing of museums click here.
