Clementines and Freesias

Clementines and Freesias

7x5in oil on canvas  90.

Trying to do a full still life in such a tiny space was an interesting and challenging experience. I usually zoom in to have more of a close-up type view.
I used a brush all the way through as the details were too small for me to comfortably use my knife.
 I find using an angular shader is excellent for this type of work. The one I used was size 3/8. Any thin lines are easy using the tip and I blend colors by dipping into two different colors - one at each end, and apply with a simple stroke.
