Sliced

6x6" oil on masonite
Today I'm working on a commission. These I did while painting "Patience". Its one of those little round single sized watermelons (which taste like air btw). I sliced it for my sons afterschool snack and thought it looked fun to paint plus I had a full palette. Below was my first attempt, I wasnt happy with the comp. It looks too much like...well, "melons" so I sliced it one more time and I think it works much better. The 'men' in my house prefer the 1st one. Go Figure. This is my 70th post!

I see what you mean about that first one (LOL). I definitely like your second one better - the composition is much more interesting to me.

Congrats on your 70th post! Hey, maybe you should paint some diamonds for your 75th one ...

Very nice painting! I like the second one better, too. The colours are great.
