Lemon with Cans
Lemons with Cans
6x6in oil on canvas panel 85.
For the Dailypaintworks Challenge - Seeing Double. Where two paintings
of different sizes have to be done from the same source material.
This is the other painting done from the same set up as yesterday.
I just moved my easel slightly and zoned in on the cans.
Here is the grouping in the studio. All these things I had recently painted and
placed on the counter ready to be put away,
but as I was walking past them the colors caught my eye
and I found them beautiful.
right corner! My level below it.
The plum and little vase was
replaced by the lemon and lime.
The turquoise pencil was right there.
It all looked perfect so I brought my
easel over and painted it as is.
I had to be careful not to have both cans too shiny so I made the closer
one more detailed. The cans were the most difficult thing to do with
the fracturing technique.
