White fleshed nectarines

I painted some more nectarines, this time white fleshed fruit. They were in a wooden bowl that my father made. 

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.
