"Summer Fruits and Vegetables" 2015 acrylic on wood

"Summer Fruits & Vegetables"  is my newest painting. This is an experiment in still life using the grisaille technique and overlaying thin glazes atop the tonal study in grays. The ground is 18 inches wide by 12 inches high on 3/8-thick medium density fiber board prepared with two coats of gesso between sandings for an ultra-smooth surface. I used acrylic paints from the tube mixed with a little bit of retarder. I used red, yellow and blue paint.

The "Summer Fruits & Vegetables" acrylic still life painting by award winning Citrus County Florida artist Michael Arnold makes a bold statement on any wall where it is displayed.
