"Lady Finger Bananas" by Jonathan Aller

"Lady Finger Bananas"
8 x 10 in
Oil on Canvas Panel
This is the second version of baby bananas painting, a friend of mine told me there actual name is "Lady Fingers".  This composition was interesting in many ways, to paint these fruits in a view where there not so noticeable made it fun.  I like doing that at times deconstructing the subject matter by changing the composition with a unique look.  The subtle values of yellows to greens became a bit of a challenge to paint with such subdued tones, a great challenge overall to a delicious and beautiful fruit.
