"Peeled Tangerine with Cranberries"
Oil on 5"x7"Linen panel
I peeled the tangerine, and painted another picture of it with some cranberries. This one is done on a linen panel that I had made. I had primed the panel with a thin "scumble" of raw sienna oil paint and then let it dry. Painting on this surface was enjoyable. The dark paint in the background is thin and transparent, and the light foreground is also thin, but opaque. The tangerine is painted thicker, which makes a nice contrast. This was my last linen panel, I think I'd like to make some more!
