Eggplant Studies

My garden now has some beautiful eggplants which I love to paint. Here is watercolor study. The water bleeds suggest the highlights. The soft edges and warm/ cool color changes contribute to the illusion of round form.

Here is the same eggplant, turned on its side, painted in oil, The round form is created using soft edges and warm/cool temperature shifts. The bright highlight is the lightest blue color.
