"Fuyu Persimmons"

"Fuyu Persimmons"
8 x 10 in
Oil on Canvas Panel
Hi everyone I hope you guys have a great Halloween weekend!  What your costumes gonna be?  I saw these fruits at the store and was intrigued by them, they look as if they're a mix of tomatoes and oranges.  Their name is "Fuyu Persimmons" thats what it said on the tag at the store, pretty interesting looking fruit.  I really like the intense oranges and yellows that wrap around the skin, the leaves on the stem also give this fruit some character.  It was also nice playing with the composition, having the two fruits playing along the edge giving some intense drama.

You can see the making of this painting on my blog:
