Title: Lemons on a blue cloth
Post by: KathyKuz on September 11, 2017, 01:07:35 PM
  This is a 5"x7" painting.  I tried to get a neutral shadow color.  Comments welcome.

Hey, KathyK, nice work.  Bight lemon yellow. 

Best part is the blue band on the towel. Looks so real.  Nice background, too.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Another lovely painting Kathy and I too was struck by the blue band on the towel.  Very life like.  Another thing that caught my eye in your recent paintings are your backgrounds which are vibrant and really complements the focal point.  It is very reminiscent of Sharon's backgrounds which are always bright and alive.  Good job Kathy, keep it up.

Sharon:  That background was just what this painting needed to pop the blue stripe.   :thankyou:

 :heeha: Love your lemons Kathy, another thing I can't get here!  We get 'limons' which we call limes. The oranges are 'naranjas' are green skinned!  :doh:

Go figure!  :2funny:       Well done!  :clap: :clap: :clap:

 :thankyou: Val.  I have been painting these little 5"x7" paintings.  I can finish them before I get too tired.  I have never seen limons.  I would like to see them.

Val, Western supermarket oranges are dyed orange. The original oranges were rather greenish. Maybe you are eating the traditional fruit. The point is... are they nice to eat? I do love these bright lemons. Kathy, the blue stripe on the tea towel is so real it makes me nostalgic.  We don't see many of these linen tea towels any more. Maybe you could do orange oranges on a tea towel with a red stripe next and make both Val and me ecstatic?

I love the composition.  The colours have a Scadinavian look to it... dear to my heart.  Beautiful!

Hi Kathy, your painting is good, but I am a bit puzzled... where does the light come from?  ???
Title: Re: Lemons on a blue cloth
Post by: KathyKuz on October 01, 2017, 05:07:45 AM
Gita:  The light is from the middle left.  It is an odd placement but it worked for the effect.

Crap!  :doh: I ate it. Forgot to take the photo, next trip. They are delicious to eat, and juice? Wow!  :licklips:   The fun part is you're never sure exactly what colour the inside will be. It can be everything from a yellowy orange, to bright orange, or a orangey red! The skins are yellowy green to dark green and almost always have brown to dark brown spots. They look nasty, but cut one open..... heaven!  :cloud9:
