Study of Lemons
lemon, I decided that I should give it another shot and maybe this time get it right. I ended up painting two. This is my favorite oil sketch so far. I like the light and atmosphere in this study, as well as the contrast between the darks and lights. When starting this study I knew I wanted to show the first layer of color as much as possible. I like the effect of push and pull this gives to a painting, with the color ground receding and the top layers standing out. I'm starting to enjoy doing these daily sketches and hopefully I can keep this up.
