Oranges on cloth

Playing with simplifying and abstracting a bit - making flatter shapes, experimenting...
~~~
I was out plein air painting today, working on another pond scene. I'm going back to the location tomorrow morning to see if I can finish it. As soon as my sketch was done and I squirted out my first bit of paint, the wind picked up - and stayed up - and my reflections were gone. Not to return : ( I worked from my sketch but I felt a difference from working directly from the water, so back tomorrow morning and crossing my fingers for calm conditions!

Interesting technique. I really do like this painting. The slash of blue across the canvas is very arresting and is a perfect background for the oranges. And then the blue shadows repeat the circles of the fruit. Really nice!

Another beautiful painting Kim. I hope your next adventure works out a little better for you.
