Clementines on Asters

Clementines on Asters

Here is the finished clementine painting with all that pattern. I have done watercolor sketches of clementines so I thought it was time to do a more formal still life with their wonderful orangeness. The fabric I had used years ago to make a table runner and napkins. It has a pattern I still love, even after committing it to paint. Thinking it would prove to be difficult, actually it was the silver bowl that was the most fun to paint in this still life.

I can't believe this is only 6 x 6; it has such a presence! Beautiful work, Ann!

Ann - so colorful and looks like you caught the texture in the fruit as well. Clementines are so sweet. Hope you are staying warm today.
