Some still life paintings I did for college:
The aim of these paintings was to practice accurate colour mixing and gain experience of contrasting colours.
I used Vincent Van Gogh as inspiration for these paintings because I liked the way he edged his fruit in blue in his still life paintings. It contrasts the colours of the fruit so makes them stand out.
I also did these preparatory sketches to help me to decide on the composition and get familiar with the pieces of fruit.
