View Full Version : Finally finished those lemons

I started this last week, so this is actually a pretty quick one for me. The image is a little dark, but I think the lemons could stand to be more yellow, and the orange could be more orange and less red. Also, the shadow on the orange is too big and too hard-edged. The cut surface of the right-hand lemon also needs to be a softer yellow. Any other thoughts?

Liquitex BASICs matt (except the black is Golden) on 9x12 unprimed paper.

The first image is way too dark. The second one is better, even though it's too green. And the white is much more eye-popping than in the painting. Scanners - argh.
