Kiwi Fruit in Retro Painting


I've been eating lots more fruit lately, and it has led to another painting! This design was based on some of my previous paintings of bright and bold fruit outlines (see my pear painting and apple painting).

I liked the pattern that a cut kiwi fruit made, so I simplified it and turned it into a minimal design. The green paint is Taubmans Grass Court, and the lovely grey was a mixture of Dulux Grid and some white.

After drawing in the kiwi fruit outlines, I painted in the background, the green and the centre of the kiwi fruit.

I then finished off the design with outlines in black paint. I actually thought that this pattern would look quite nice as material too.

Happy making!
