A Slice of Cantaloupe

A Slice of Cantaloupe, 5" by 7", oil on linen board, February 2009
Private collection, Williamsburg, Virginia

I worked until late last night on this study of a slice of cantaloupe. The luminosity of the slice created stronger colors than the material itself, and everything seemed to glow with light and color. The details of the edges and corners provided a good contrast to the big fields of shine and color.
