I'm kind of laughing a little at how this one turned out. I like it. But it's a little more...graphic? more illustrative looking than I had originally planned.

Orange and Blue II - Still life oil painting - 6x6

I love painting these bright little tangerines, and I love how they look next to our blue dishes. I find orange to be a tricky color to paint with (just how yellow is a tricky color) it's not always as opaque as I want it to be, but I think these little guys turned out all right.

Yellow on Blue - Lemon Still Life Oil Painting - 6x6

Another little still life for today, using the same technique as yesterday. I love how the brushstrokes on the plate turned out, they are exactly what I wanted. I don't usually use these panels for still lifes, I feel like they're a little to smooth for such open shapes, but I really enjoyed working on them for these last two paintings.
