Kiwi-Two Too Shy

Close ups

Oil on 5x7 hardboard.

I have never done a Green subject that I can recall. I believe a lot of us tend to subjugate (don't know if it's the right word, but it's fun to type...Lol) it or avoid it altogether.
But as I really relaxed and looked, really looked, I saw many subtle nuances. That, for me, made this painting fun!
