Fruit on White, 1
I am thinking it would be good to work with some whites for a while. I remember seeing in real life a small painting, maybe 8x12 or 14 inches, by Redon, of one lemon and another fruit, maybe a plum, sitting in the middle and not touching, of a shimmering white background and foreground. The white was so alive that it was equal to the small darker shapes of the fruit. So, how to make it shimmer, how to make the little bit of positive and huge negative space work,
