Eye Candy for Today: John William Hill’s Plums

Plums, John William Hill

Watercolor, graphite, and gouache on Bristol board, 7 x 12 inches; in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The enlargement on the museum’s website is actually in greater detail than the crops I’ve provided here.

I love the rendering of the fruit in this simple, direct study: fastinatingly textural close-up, but naturalistic at an appropriate distance.
