Preliminary Sketch Abstract Nespoli

I like the design that came through in my photograph of the nespoli (also known as loquat) tree.

Low Hanging Nespoli

Yesterday’s painting was fun to do. I think resolving the shapes in the photograph to circles and polygons would be an interesting exercise as well. Below is my preliminary drawing.

In the second stage, I will try using blended colors to contrast with the stark outlines of the figures. I omitted the ribs of the geometric leaves when the figure in front obscures it.

I’m hoping that the result will be a background of harmonious greens that make the circles in the foreground pop out and gradually recede as the viewer’s gaze progresses from bottom to top.
