Grapefruit and Lemon Halves

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.

Starting to paint for a major upcoming show in January 2019. So most of works that I’m painting now will not be up for sale until after the show.
