"Nectarines" by Jonathan Aller

5 x 7 in
Oil on Canvas Panel
I wanted to continue the paring of fruits since the previous pair resembled nectarines so much.  The whole time I was painting I thought wow these really do look like nectarines.  That's the reason I wanted to paint actual nectarines for todays alla prima session.  Today was a bit challenging to paint these in natural light, the weather was cloudy for most of the day and pretty gloomy at times.  I wanted to stay true to painting in this manner even though it got pretty dim the colors were still pretty true to the original.
