OIL ON CRADLED WOOD PANEL
6 x 6 in.
I was initially attracted to the strange folds and colors on the skin of dragon fruits so I was pleasantly surprised to find that the interior is a hot magenta pink. Painting a cut piece of fruit is a little bit of a race to paint as much as you can before it gets dried up or rotten. I had a lot of fun painting those fleshy folds and accompanying shadows.
