This painting describes pieces of fruit, celebrating light, colour, surface and volume, and has been influenced by the still life paintings of Cezanne, Chardin and many European still-life painters of earlier centuries. It was painted from observation at particular times in direct even theatrical sunlight, which enhanced and transformed surface and detail.

The painting is in acrylic, watercolour and gouache on paper, applied over a sympathetic base colour, further colours were then delicately applied over it, both by mixing and by the gradual accumulation of many layers.

The simple minimal composition helps to highlight the unique geography, the variety and individuality of the pieces of fruit, and tiny incidents of shape and nuances of colour. They are stacked up vertically and seem to jostle silently against one another, each with its own characteristic shape, volume, weight and colour.
