"Strawberries and Grapes on White Cloth"
Oil on 5"x7" hardboard panel
I've been doing some thinking about design, and composition. Contrasts of color, shape, light and dark... etc. All the things that make a painting interesting to look at. I'm not always mindful of making sure these things are a part of my design. I've been doing alot of drawing lately too. And I notice that I really like drawing things with wavy lines, so I decided to put the focus on the folds of fabric in this little painting, and put the fruit up at the top. It's different, but a nice change, I like it.
