A Different Perspective
Top View, Pineapple 5 x 5" Oil on Canvas
"Look for a different point of view." This is told to student artists many times over, and it is good advice. This pineapple caught my eye when looking into the deep recesses of the foliage. And so, I painted it from this perspective. The colors were interesting, and so were the shapes of the leaves. The background needed to be rather neutral, but a little bit tropical too.
