Oranges, Apple and Bananas


Oranges, apple and bananasI’ve been having my classes paint still-life paintings and I figured I should do one, also.  I always use a lamp to give a highlight and shadow.  This makes the painting more dramatic.  It is important to break down the individual shapes seen in each object, then paint the actual color seen in those shapes.  Contrast is very important, also.  I’ve got a dark background which really brings out the other parts of the picture.
