Peach 2

- by Deanne Flouton

This week's theme: The Summer Fruits

When you start listing all the good things about summer so many things come to mind. There are vacations, sleeping late, hot days spent swimming in cold water, long days, and as marvelous as those things are, one of my favorites is the wonderful, fresh fruit that can be found at farmer's markets, produce stands and in many backyards.

Botanicals are great kitchen and breakfast nook décor. I've wanted to create a series for my kitchen but it always got relegated to the back burner until now. When this show came up, the time was ripe, as well as the fruit.

The artwork is a result of several processes. First, the original photo of a white nectarine (shown below) was used as a reference to digitally paint the fruit in Studio Artist where liberties in color were taken to give it a richer and "peachier" appearanc. The leaves were "borrowed" from a photo in Wikipedia and additionally painted where needed to repair shadows. The pieces were then tweaked, rotated and positioned in Photoshop where background, text and borders were also added.
