Bowl with Lemons– 6" x 8" – Oil on Canvas Panel – SOLD

Yesterday with a day off was spent painting. I am looking forward to when painting during the week is a regular occurrence, but now it is just a luxury I savor.

For this painting I thought it would be fun to paint with an analogous palette of blue, green and yellow. Occasionally I would mix in red to either knock the saturation of a color down, or with the white bowl, to create a color vibration off of the predominating colors in the painting. This is an exercise I am going to play with more in the future.
