Fruit Studies from the CG Archive



Here are some images of Colour Study works from my archive, to offer a flavour of fruitfulness as the evenings draw-in over middle England and as the greens transmute to gold and red. A spontaneous colour study is infused with a sence of place and time, which is unrepeatable in its unique record of our moment. It depicts the truthfulness and the simplicity of domestic bliss, embraced by the peaceful joy of watching something grow.
