Cut Lemon - 6" x 6" Oil on Canvas Panel SOLD

Painting lemons has been a focus of mine for a few months. Each time I paint them, I learn something new. My ability to observe and understand them has increased, so I am now starting to investigate how to capture the translucent interior. Cutting a quarter wedge out of the fruit was a way to emphasize how light transmits through, and how the white of the rind is quite reflective.
