"Circus Plums"
6 x 6 in
Oil on Canvas Panel

I wanted to revisit these fun plums and be a bit more whimsical, I also miss painting this beautiful marble top. Painting these two surfaces together contrast each other nicely. The tension this composition creates is pretty interesting, the plums seem to be having a hard time holding up the top plum. You can create infinite story lines with this one. I've always said if you want to better yourself in painting paint marble, it's so true. Aside from painting flowers which also excels you in every way, painting marble teaches to control your medium and notice with each stroke the type of textures you'r laying down. You can easily apply what you've learned to anything you paint, of course you have to conform it to the subject you'r painting. I miss painting the wooden board I use for the majority of these alla prima's, but painting this marble has given me so much joy and teaches me something new every time. You can see the making of this painting on my blog http://www.jonaller.blogspot.com, thank you for stopping by and viewing now here's a little bio of myself.
