"Tangerine and Peel" Oil on 6x6 in. board
While arranging these clementine tangerines for a painting, I decided that I should peel one to make things more interesting. But, once I peeled it, the sweet fragrance of it was too much to resist, and I started eating one section at a time until I only had two pieces left. So, I put them back into the set up along with the empty peel to paint.
I finished up the painting, but it seemed to need some contrast to all of the orange. A few days went by before I could get back to it. And today, while at the grocery store I saw some tangerines packed with green tissue paper around them! Hey! and the first thing I did when I got home was to get out some green tissue paper and add it into my set up. It seemed to add just the right touch.
