Hey Barb! I like your oranges! They do look juicy and you have a great technique going there overall. I think the juice at the bottom works better than the droplets on the oranges. Can you try that technique on the oranges to see if that gives a more juicy look (to the actual orange)?
Great job.

Barb, very nice work! Your oranges are very exciting and vibrant.

Maybe if you lowered the opacity of the white droplets and put a little hightlight on each one?

This painting is very impressive!

Well done!!!!

As said..I would do something with the droplets, maybe overlay a lighter orange color, other than that...squeeze me a glass of OJ :clap:

Great stuff :clap:
I love the texture you have got into the orange skin with your brush strokes.

My only comment would be where is your lighting coming from? I think its either the top or from behind the whole orange. They only reason I say this is the shadows are conflicting in places. If the main light is from behind the main orange or from the front there should be shadows cast between each slice and expecially the back piece, this would add to the depth.

I really like this piece, and the way you have used the water at the bottom is a nice touch.

Keep em coming
