"N" is for

oil on board/ 4 x 4/ $75/ available at Suttons
Nectarine. I painted these first without cutting them but the composition was not very interesting. I like this with the center pit better.

Artist Note: I like to paint on a darker background, often black. When my subject will have vibrant colors, however, I find that a red or coral background adds to the richness of the painting. Here, I allowed bits of the underpainting to warmly peek through.
