Still Life Paintings With Watermelons

Abstract Still Life Paintings With Watermelons

Here are a few new still life paintings with watermelons that were created with acrylics on paper. Thought it was a great post, and subject, for this summer heat. I'm not a fan of watermelon but couldn't resist painting them once I saw my wife slicing one open a few days ago. The color combos are lovely and I enjoyed exploring a few different palettes.

These were created in one session that took about two hours. But I did do some preliminary graphite sketches to break the ice. I typically spend more time exploring new subjects but decided to go for it a bit sooner because I was crushed for time.

Anyhow, I will explore this subject a bit more as summer ticks away. Hope you enjoyed the new paintings and thanks for having a look.
