Lemons and Bell Jar still life food art by Linda Hunt

6X6
This color combination really works for me.  I incorporated value range not only from light to dark, but also,  in color temperature.  I am happy with this little painting.
Half the battle is setting up the still life...it takes me almost more time to set something up as it does to paint.  It is difficult to train myself to take it slow and do the preliminary drawing before I begin.  At some point maybe I won't need to include this step.

I love the colors in this one and the blue lines in the jar as contrast.

Yes, your colors are beautiful and well placed. I also like the spoon with those reflections. Very nice!

Beautiful. Love your color combinations and of course your luscious paint application.
