Onside pepper

Orange pepper not yellow.  Bumbed me out cause I couldn't render it in simple strokes.

Lone Lemon

6x6 oil on mansonite

I was frustrated with trying to render the bump on the end of the lemon that was protruding into the shadow side of lemon.  This carried over into the next two paintings also.

Radish shading

Working on getting down a single brush stroke in just the Right Spot.

Back lit citrus

6x8 oil on canvas

Brush strokes not standing out enough. The right side had the reflection  of the light source and the left had mostly local color.

Lemon and Radishes

6x8 oil on canvas panel

The lemon is the focal and the radishes with the green leaves were supposed to be accents however, I didn't have anything else to use that was smaller. A stuffed olive would have been just right but I eat those too fast. There is a little reflection and I didn't want to over do it.

Two Fruit an a Veg

Still trying to get the big brush stroke and not scrubby strokes.

Pair of Pears

6x8 oil on canvas

Little glare on photo. The left one doesn't have such a strong blue. Did I get impressionistic? No, it's the photo.

Pears on Tangerine

This is the reworked image for values. The right pear has the pink skin where as the left pear is only green/yellow
6x8 oil on canvas

Still trying to get those strokes right. Used the #8 brush again. But it's width seemed smaller than Carols on rounded fruits. Tomorrow #10 or the mega #12

Pear on Tangerine

6x8 oil on canvas panel

I used a #8 size brush on this one.  Doesn't look all that good though.  Must be rushing too much.

6x8 oil on canvas panel

This is ...well..poor.  :(     I think I shouldn't use those taklon brushes on cavas. Bristle seems better.

Pear in Blue

6x8 oil on canvas panel

Pear's form seems a little off.

Orange brothers

6x8 oil on canvas panel

Two kinds of oranges. Not sure you can tell that the tall one has a slice out of it. The photo is off a little cause the whole orange isn't pink at the turn.

Orange on green

Was trying to get that orange glow through the slice. Not quite.

Yellow roses in blue blue bottle

6x8 oil on canvas panel

Thought that i'd give the flowers a shot. Trying to keep abstract.

Tumbler and lime

I wanted to rework yesterdays. I gave it another shot.

lime and glass

6x4 oil on canvas panel

Doesn't really look grounded. maybe add some highlights on the rim edges.

Blue Tea pot and pepper.

6x8 oil on canvas panel

Couldn't get the uploader to work yesterday. Couldn't give up on the peppers yet.
