Watermelon sketches (5"x5" each)

I found a nice hollow sounding seedless watermelon at Co-op this week and we devoured it today. I enjoyed eating it so much that I decided to do a couple of small studies to explore the subject - my primary interest was the color and texture of the flesh.
The reflection on the knife fascinated me BUT it wasn't quite so vicious looking as these turned out. The placement of the knife in the sketches is such that a reflection of mostly green with just a tiny bit of red placed properly would have been a big improvement. Freud might have had a grand old time interpreting these sketches.... lol!
Until tomorrow....
