Day 20: Cantaloupe on good-rimmed plate

This is a painting that I had mostly finished for day 19 of the thirty day challenge. I just didn't like it enough to photograph and post it. The background was too insipid... a muted green-grey and it did nothing for the beautiful freshness of the wet juicy orange fruit (which was as delicious (even after baking under the lights) as it looks).
So I added just a note of indanthrone blue to a lot of white and knifed it over the other background. This did it. For me, it makes the orange sing.

You can see the other day 20 entries here (and scroll back to see the ones you missed on day 19....)
