PEELED SOLD


These little Clementines have a beautiful red orange color and a nice globe like shape. They are very appealing to paint. I peeled this fruit to expose the lush interior and the exposed creamy peel.

Linda, this little one is especially lovely, I really like the curved lines and shapes and the "just right" greyed blue to compliment the orange colors. Very well done!

Hi Linda--this painting really caught my eye--I love the transparency of the orange.

Linda, This really caught my eye! The beautiful glow on the orange, offset by the grayed background is very effective!

I think this may be the best orange painting I've ever seen. It looks plump and ready to squirt. Gorgeous!

Virginia Floyd said...

Very, very nice. This little orange has such a glow, it casts its luminosity onto the table!

i really like your brushstrokes in this one - how they help define the shape - and the translucency is lovely! thank you!

Delicious! Your values are so good in this and I love the way the peel draws the eye across the canvas. Beautiful light!

I love the shapes that you painted on this one. Luscious colors.

This painting is a standout! The colors, the brushwork and I love the peel receding in the background.

Masterful painting! Don't take this the wrong way, but it looks sooo effortless and random, I just LOVE that about your paintings!!
