"Watermelon Reflections" by Ann Rogers

8 x 10
oil on hardboard

The timing of the "upside down" theme for the month of July is just perfect since I just painted this watermelon painting for the Daily PaintWorks blog. The weekly challenge was to paint from a photograph but do it upside down (the photo, not the artist). Amazing that when you do this, you concentrate more on shapes and spacial differences rather than on objects. When you finally finish and flip the painting, wow, what a surprise! A great exercise, give it a try!  

By the way, "Happy First Birthday" to Some Texas Artists Like to Paint! Hard to believe that we started this blog one year ago!


  1. I love the abstract look of this painting! And the colors!! What a perfect thing for the 4th of July.

  2. Cool and crisp colors and reflection! I did not realize a year had passed, we should have cake on Wednesday!
