This is on 8 by 10 inch canvas. It is based on an image in the RIL; thanks jade fox. I am thinking of not using yellow anymore because I can't get good images with the use. I have tried altering the yellow in my paintings in Photoshop Elements without much success. I would appreciate all comments. Thanks.

Fabulous Arlene! Your style is quite unique!
Curious though, your colors almost seem very transparent, do you thin them down alot? I think your fruit would stand our alot more if they were darker, maybe with thicker paint to stand out from the background.
Just a thought.

Thanks Kathie. I use a fair amount of gloss medium but after the first glaze, the second glazes have more paint. I have decided to glaze the local colors of objects over the yellow. Since I have a warm and cool yellow, I should be able to still achieve pure hues. I just have not been able to get a good copy on the PC with yellow. I understand others have this problem with yellow.
