About this artwork
Artist Paula Martino demonstrates an impressionist still life of fall harvest and other vegetables on a white cloth. Paula paints the rustic piece with a hog hair brush with large, bold strokes to achieve a moderate balance of elements. The diagonal of the beet greens and the zucchini builds an attractive contrast to the roundness of the pumpkins, squash, and garlic. The use of cerulean blue on some of the highlights incorporates well with the oranges and pinks in the composition.
