Oranges


I really didn't know what I wanted to paint today until I looked down at the orange that I had just cut into pieces and there was my painting. Because the sections were cut, the meat of the orange was exposed and the color was very intense. I applied the paint thick over thin until I achieved the desired look that I was after. I used a cool Cobalt blue and a variety of orange, reds, and yellows.

Linda, it is so great seeing how you can make common objects into really nice paintings.

Beautiful colors in the orange. Great job on that. I really like the deep blue of the plate behind the orange slices. It really sets off the colors.

The minute I saw these I could almost smell the citrus. My mouth is watering. Guess that means they really did pass the visual test, huh? Great confident strokes of paint.

Simplicity is moving and the brushwork bold.
Subtlety of the background blues is soothing.
