The Art of Paul Wright

Kissing by Paul Wright

Tomatoes have a very simplistic form. It is very difficult to create an interesting image when using a subject matter with such a basic shape. Paul wright succeeds in creating a wonderful image. This image really shows off his technical skill. The visible brushstrokes soften the image and yet he still manages to capture the smooth surface of the fruit. Capturing how the light hits the surface defines how we view the texture of that surface. He has captured the light with such precision that his brushstrokes can be soft and lose and you can still identify the tomato as being smooth and shinny.
