Lemons again. I enjoyed trying to get the different planes and colors that are in the lemons.
The water glass was a new challenge. I've tried to paint a water glass only once, and I think this is better than my first time. My ellipse isn't great, though. The thing I like best is the shadow of the glass.
I started this painting two days ago and was very unhappy after several hours. Today I was tempted to just start a new painting, but I lectured myself and made me try to finish this one. I'm glad I did; I need the discipline! I'd always rather start something new...a fresh canvas, a new possibility. But I don't want to have a bunch of unfinished paintings, so I trudged on.
These were the same lemons I used in my prior painting. When I was cleaning up today, I discovered that they were getting very soft. Several days in the set up and hours under the light hastened their demise! I'll have to find another subject for my next painting.
