Rinds

Just a couple watermelon rinds.  After I painted this, I found the shadows might be confusing the subject, but I was interested in the shapes that the shadows made around the rinds.
Midnight Melon

Midnight Melon

I was cutting up some watermelon today and decided to use a few pieces for one of my daily paintings.  Started this late on Sunday and finished it at midnight.  I struggled with the color on the dark side of the melon pieces as well as the green rind.
Bench (Again and Again)

BART Bench (Again)

I am going to keep playing around with the BART bench.  I went over the original monochromatic block in to establish some color variation.  I may make one more pass over this to try another scheme before stepping into larger working surface.
