"Yellow Raspberries" by Jonathan Aller

"Yellow Raspberries"
5 x 7 in
Oil on Canvas Panel
Yellow raspberries is a fruit I never though existed, it was a surprise for me to see them at the grocery store.  I was beyond excitement to paint these guys, it's challenging though to properly show their true colors in a painting.  Yellow is a difficult color to paint it can easily look to glowy or too dark and lose its yellowness.  It's a great way though to challenge yourself to see how you can control its values and properly render this beautiful color.

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