Wes' Favorite 6x6 oil

My son Wes loves avocados. He likes to eat them. I love the beautiful rich green skin, strong branch stems and their form. What was most important in the set up was where the shadows landed and the blue light that was being cast through the blue glass bowl. The arrangement was fun, but most of all I love green and blue. Doing 6x6's are good for experimenting without so much at stake.

They look real hard and shiny. I love your way of applying the paint!

This is such a fresh painting.

Love that brushwork, Dori...
I so agree... the small format paintings are fun and don't get you all tied up in knots doing them..

Well done!

Great job! First of all, love the color palette. Dark on dark is so hard to pull off but you did it with ease. The taut skin of the Avocado reflects the light so wonderfully.

I know this is my fourth or fifth comment but I can't always see your beautiful work so I'm commenting while I can!
