"Clementines and a Sunburst"
Oil on 8x10 in. canvas
I decided to try something a bit different. I rearranged my room to change the position of my easel and subject. I pushed my chair back, and stood to paint. It made a big difference. (plus, standing burns a few more calories than sitting, and I could sure use that!)
These are some clementines and a sunburst tangerine, sitting on a silver platter, with a vase of green leaves and white cloth. I was attracted to the deep green color and orange together, and the dark wood of the table top. I enjoyed painting the cloth with all it's folds, I think I will do that more often in the future.
Thank you for all the lovely comments everybody!
