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