nice! i like very much the foliage background, you achieved a very rich and right green, while, IMHO, lemons should be a little more yellow... at least, italians lemons are!:)

ciao, rapolina.

agree about the color of the lemons


I think the values are a little close...may be the scan?

Your foliage is amazing!!!!!!!!!
I do think that the lemons are lacking a little something, not sure it's colour....maybe some detail...piholes or something, seeing as they are painted as a close up.
???
I'm also not sure that the orange works as a shadow colour on the lemons...maybe a hint of blue washed over them will cool them down a bit?

Just my suggestions! :)

I love your background, the leaves and the branches. Perhaps sponging on some dimples in a slightly deeper color would give them more lemon skin texture?

You've gotten some good advice.

Where's Madmum? She needs to see these! (Taghera, behave yourself!)

Stunning background , so mystical and deep.
I find the shape of lemons a bit off. They seem to long and slim for lemons. I agree with comments about lemon texture and color.

These lemons just aren't ripe yet! :D

Lyn, stop stirring ;) These lemons don't look at all like nipples! :evil:

I'll try to be serious :angel: I think they look a bit too orange, think lemon yellow and lime green. Mind you it's so hard to paint shadows on anything yellow! Try darkening the blues (like Pam told me on my lemons!)

I love the rich background! Cooling the leaf shadow down is a good suggestion...

Lyn... you have a good memory... LOL

Ruth... you know she was just making lemonaide!!!
