"Baby Pineapple" by Jonathan Aller

"Baby Pineapple"
7 x 5 in
Oil on Canvas Panel
I never knew these guys existed a baby version of a pineapple, I was seriously laughing in the middle of the grocery store when I saw this.  Of course it was to go not to paint, its just such a neat looking fruit with its miniature size.  Its overall colors are pretty subtle, the yellows are the only intense chroma on this fruit.  I also wanted to play again with a wash in the background by just using turps, and burnt umber.  I like the look it gave it, more of a rustic look than what I expected.  

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