Typical romantic coconut painting

I just wanted to do a coconut painting...
And ended up setting up one of the more difficult still life paintings I've tried. It took another challenge to get my courage up to try to finish this from memory, which was all I needed really. It started and ended in joy, with a little frustration in the middle. Just growing pains...now I'm going to have to try another one!



  1. Great work Melle, love the colours of the coconut and the light coming from the candle!!

  2. It was a lovely moment...I like that it's just from the sketch I made and memory, no photograph. Somehow, it ended up more "real" in both a visual sense, as well as emotionally. We are having some fun, huh?
