Still life, Mango, lemon and lime

I made this still life that follows on from the drawing of my brushes that I made last week I arranged the fruit on the window ledge in the corner of my studio. It was wonderful to immerse myself in the colours of the fruit whilst I was drawing and I can revisit the memory of the experience whilst writing this for you. The contrast of shadow behind the subjects interested me too. I’ve been very inspired by the Channel 4 TV programme ‘Apples, Pears and Paint’ which I watched recently.
