Bananas and Oranges

This is for Rookie Painter, November 2011 challenge. It's oil on 12x10 canvas board.

There were three reference photos given (ref), I chose this one because I liked the direct sunlight onto the fruits. I did change the color of the orange from green back to orange. The background is a cooler shade of grey in order to contrast with the fruits. The main colors included cadmium yellow light and dark, burnt sienna, sap green, ultramarine blue and violet, burnt umber, cadmium orange, lemon yellow, Paynes grey and white.


  1. very good work, i agree with the light...
