Pumkin Final

"Pumpkin and White Onions" 11"x14" oil on linen. I worked hard on this one to achieve a variety of textures and a heirarchy of detail. The pumpkin is pretty tight, next the onions and then varying degrees of focus for the rest. I wanted to give the feel of the fded box without necessarily painting every crevace. I kept stepping back quite a bit and asking myself if it had the feel as well as the look. I like the shadow box effect of the hanging cloth and I think I'm going to explore it in some other paintings.
