Bowl of Citrus



6" x 6" oil on hardboard

The DPW challenge last week was "Yellow." Fortuitously, I've been working on some still lifes with lemons and limes in preparation for a workshop I'm teaching.

This was a more complicated setup than I would normally attempt, with so much fruit in the bowl, but the cropping seemed right. Believe it or not those are lemons, not oranges. I kept them around so long trying different things, they really darkened up by the second week ;-)

    1. Thanks Sandra, I was pretty happy with how it turned out. That bowl is hard to paint; it's a weird green that's not quite warm, not quite cool.
