Nectarines - Finished

Nectarines 8 x 10" pastels on sanded board Sold

I think this is the finish! I got rid of the fold in the cloth...I think it distracted from the nectarines. I tried to add interest to the cloth with just color, and it turned out sort of abstract.

Cindy, this piece is so simple yet so breathtaking. I love how you have incorporated some of the colors of the peaches into the cloth and background.

Thank you Holly! When you smoosh the pastels all around like I do...you're bound to get those colors all over the place. But I'm glad you like the extra colors I added at the last.

Cindy this makes me want to pull out the pastels, but they make me sneeze too much! It looks so soft.

I like that smudge of blue at the front! The only thing is it made me wonder if the plums would be even more luminescent if the violet background was a teeny weeny bit more greyed? Just a thought.
