White fleshed nectarines
The fruit had really dark skins and were more difficult to capture than the yellow fleshed nectarines..
I painted them much larger than life sized on a canvas that was double the size of the one used for the yellow fleshed nectarines. It was also much better quality, thicker and very robust. It was a real pleasure to paint on. I must get some more canvases like it.
The nectarines were very firm when I bought them, but by the time the painting was finished they were perfect for eating and disappeared quickly.
