6" x 6"
I really feel like this lemon is sitting inside a bowl. I was slightly concerned that the composition might look too abstract from a view point directly above the bowl. Halfway through the painting I knew it was going to work. I'm satisfied with my results. This particular bowl is a piece of artwork by a local potter. I spotted the bowl with the lemon sitting in it while we were visiting friends on New Year's eve and knew instantly I wanted to use it as a painting subject. I made a special trip all the home to retrieve my camera and returned to take some photos. I think it makes the perfect compliment to the lemon. This is painting 262 in my Painting A Day Series. Painting Sold.
