Watermelon is a real treat this time of year, so I bought one of those little melons, cut it up, painted it, then ate it. I really loved painting the pinks of the melon. Too bad it was seedless, because seeds would have added visual interest. I guess I could find some photo reference and add the seeds; maybe I still will.
In my initial set-up there was a knife in the foreground that gave me so much trouble, after several attempts I just took it out. Having a little trouble with still life composition...I think I need to simplify them going forward.
