Depth and Foreground

Part of what I like about painting realistically is getting the illusion of depth. The canvas is completely flat -- it's called the "picture plane" -- but we are trying to make it look like we could reach right in and touch something. This session, the red onion and vase in front of the tropical fruit makes it look like there is a world inside that canvas.
