"Lemon In Silver" 18x28

Oil on Cradled Hardboard 18"x26"

I liked the “Lemon in Silver” composition so much that I decided to paint it on a larger scale. The only part of this painting that gave me much trouble was the yellow of the lemon. There are only a couple of colors that I really don’t like painting – yellow is one of them. I usually paint wet on wet and when working with a transparent I find it can be tricky. I’m happy with the results but I’ll be staying away from lemons for a while.
