"They're Papayas"

6x6", oil on canvas board

In my last post I mentioned painting two papayas. This is that painting. I liked the texture in the skin. At first I fought the fluorescent green, then I decided I really liked the effect, especially near the purple and red. This is one of the benefits of these little paintings: You can go nuts with the color. If you want.


  1. Hi I want to congratulate you for your work in watercolor is wonderful, I love the way you highlight the picture with your strokes, very good work, greetings.

  2. Hi Ricardo. There is something mysterious about the colors and pigment placement on this one (although it's oil, not watercolor). I think it's one of those lucky outcomes that you get sometimes. Thanks so much for dropping by.
