Three Lemons in a Bowl
Oil on Canvas 3/4" deep, 8" x 10" - SOLD
$190 plus $7.95 shipping via Priority Mail to U.S.
I do love those lemons - the shape, the scent and the flavor. I'd bought a bag of them and rather than paint them as wedges, I decided to group three in one of my favorite bowls. My artistic challenge to myself was to make the lemons appear as intensely yellow as they are in life. So I tried to dull the other colors and to use complements. This painting took quite a long while and I'm growing to like it.
