I wanted to practice painting lemons with different colored backgrounds to see how that affected the colors in the lemon.
These are 6" X 6", which I find difficult to paint on. I have large handwriting, and I feel comfortable painting on larger canvases. I think those two things are related.
When I was a little girl, my grandfather told me he liked getting letters from me (revealing my age...we used to write actual letters) because my handwriting was large and he could read it. I used to like getting assignments where the teacher said to write a page on a subject. Didn't take me all that many words to fill up a page. I felt sorry for those girls who wrote with little bitty handwriting. They may be the same girls who can paint little bitty paintings. Not that there's anything wrong with that! It's just hard for me.
