Fernando Amorsolo “Mango Pickers” Master Study

A master study

Fernando Amorsolo’s “Fruit Pickers Harvesting Under The Mango Tree” Master Study

This is my study of one of Fernando Amorsolo’s iconic painting, the “Fruit Pickers Harvesting Under The Mango Tree,” or colloquially known as “Mango Pickers.” Fernando Amorsolo isn’t well known around the world, but he is very famous in the Philippines. I’m not sure at what point in my life I first ran into Fernando Amorsolo, but I remember running into his work as an adult and instantly I recognized his work. His paintings are easily recognizable.

For this particular master study, I really wanted to focus on “eyeballing” and “estimating” the colors of the original painting. I wasn’t very successful in my study. The original copy that I studied had a yellow, almost sepia tone to it. I tried recreating the warmth of the original, but I didn’t quite get there. Nonetheless, I had a great time with the exercise.
