"Baby Eggplants" by Jonathan Aller

"Baby Eggplants"
7 x 5 in
Oil on Canvas Panel
I really like the smooth texture and soft value shifts eggplants have, I think they have so much character to them.  I wanted to play with these two baby eggplants in telling a subtle story between them, almost like the characteristics of their texture and shape.  The color shift from a deep red to a subtle violet is to good not to paint, it's always one of those things that attracts me to paint.  To me these guys are an elegant and smooth fruit to paint.
