100 % Vitamin C

Oil, 30x40cms

Every now and then I manage to finish an oil painting.  I'm still on a learning curve and going to a painting class every week.  On this one I wanted to concentrate on the light and shadows and not worry too much about too much detail on the fruit.  Oranges, lemons and manderines all locally grown then piled up in a bowl on the kitchen table, thats a lot of Vit. C!

It's a wonderful painting! You have painted light and shadows with great sensitivity. I think that you have already learnt many things about oil painting!

A big thank you for all the lovely comments, I've been painting with oils for nearly a year now, my teacher (Claudia)is an excellent teacher, I wouldn't have done this without her tuition!
