You’ll rarely find a still life painting from me – my time has been spent developing a portfolio that concentrates in landscapes and seascapes. The oil pastel section of Wetcanvas is having weekly challenges with the objective to base a painting from a list of words that were provided – in my mind this lends itself nicely to painting still life’s.
I’ll be participating in these challenges and have decided to use this as an opportunity to develop my hand at still life’s. One of the words was “yellow” and banana was the first thing that came to mind. So I set about arranging a composition of bananas and a blue plate to photograph – my goal was to create different angles and close-up shots.
In the most humble way possible, I present to you “Bananas and Blue Plate” (oil pastels, 4×6) ~
