Still Life with Pumpkin and Grapes

Hailing back to an earlier colour approach, this liner composition works to create interest by the contrasting of subdued colours and neutral tones set against a warm coloured centre of interest.
Working mostly in cool greys and blues in the surrounding space and background, I also kept the detail in rendering the individual grapes to a minimum so as to lead the eye to the centre of interest created by the punch of warm orange and reds found on the active surface of the pumpkin.

I'm really quite fond of the 'paint handling' and varied surface quality found in this piece.

I hope you like it.
