Just a Slice, Pastel, 8" x 8 1/2", painted on Canson paper

A small painting that seems to be a favorite of many.  I think it is because of the subject matter, who doesn't like watermelon?  This really is a sketch, done on Canson paper.  I remember it just took an hour or so to complete, it's not often that a painting finishes up that quickly for me, when it does I'm always surprised!  This has won a couple of ribbons, little as it is.

I can see why. Your watermelon looks juicy enough to bite. Small and elegant!

Hi Robert!

Thanks so much. Watermelon always makes me smile. I wish I had a better pic of this one, my older paintings aren't photographed as well as my newer ones. Technology has improved since then.
