I love painting from the top view. I found that slicing up the fruits have very interesting textures. Especially grapefruits, oranges, lemons and avocados. Their symmetrical and circular shapes make interesting compositions.

After my commission with my hairdresser to do a couple of fruit paintings, I did more. This time with kiwi. I have to say that the kiwi are too dark for the light and translucent colors of the oranges and limes. I planned to do more without the kiwi.
