Still Life-Lemons and Napkins

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, Bloggers but I've been feeling a little under the weather. Anyways, I havent done one of these in awhile and thought I'd post a still life for you guys out there. The lemons could've been a little more yellow and less "dirty" but I was fighting the watercolors every step of the way....



pencil and watercolors.

I like your still life-- I don't do many of them myself and probably ought to. I need the practice. Your detective guy is sweet too! Nicely done!

Using yellow and black next to eachother can be tricky, they tend to bleed into eachother, even if they are not actually smearing together (not sure if that makes sense.) But lemons are a tad green so it is ok. Good to see when life hands you lemons, you do a pretty painting of them. Feel better!!

Hey man! I hope you're feeling better soon. This is a really nice still-life. It's funny, I was in New York this past weekend, and I checked out the Guggenheim. Lots and lots of Spanish still-life paintings. Very cool. Your stuff is super awesome as usual. Love your expression.
