Sweet and Sour

Sweet and Sour
6 x 6"
oil on gessoed masonite panel

  What a great combination. Just seems to work well for all the senses. I Will undoubtedly do a few more of the lemon with berries theme. Often lemons can be a bit tricky to get the color just right. The shadows can be too greenish and the yellows themselves can be off with the slightest alteration of hue, value, or chroma....but this one just worked and didn't require too much fussing. This was my initial painting in a "painting a day" format, and I was and remain very pleased with the results.
