This Watermelon Painting is part of my first series about the decomposition in fruits and vegetables. It was my first time working in gessobord and although the surface was challenging the final result was worth it. I remember buying the watermelon and putting outside the dorms to rotten for a couple of days. After rotten I organize it a table and took more than 30 pictures. The different pinks and purples where really interesting to paint and to discover.
