Malicious Melon Demo

I started teaching a 12 week class yesterday and here is the demo I did to show the big brush, thick paint technique. It never even occurred to me at the time that I just happened to chose the country's most unpopular fruit. It's funny how the news of the day can subconsciously work its way into our work.
Canalopes are cheap and so plentiful now, and their structural shapes make them really fun to paint, if you can temporarily forget the havoc they are wreaking. I think I'll focus on bananas next week.

Gorgeous, Patti! But bananas have their own issues. Strange fruit.

Hi PAtti, your choice of color is really awesome. I love the green of the skin under the dark orange.

Thanks Angie - I was hoping someone would notice that weirdo grey green color :-)
