Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

"All the variations of red that show in a broken piece of watermelon with its moist glow are wonderful to paint. I surrounded the pieces with old wine bottles, an earthenware bowl, apples, a plum, and a blue enameled container. Makes me think of summer picnics." -- SFG

Greaves' medium of choice has been, almost exclusively, traditional oil paint, like this work. She finds that it is a very flexible medium, allowing a variety of approaches. Her color combinations range from breathtaking harmonies, clear and pure, to subtly muted hues, quiet and delicate. Even the thickness of the paint can vary from thin, transparent color that glows to thick impasto whose ridges follow or oppose the form of the object.

This fine art painting is an original oil on museum quality canvas panel for ease of framing and secure shipping. The work is unframed and of a standard size to allow you to choose framing suitable to your unique environment. Greaves uses professional materials to ensure that your purchase will last a lifetime. Signed front and back.
