" Tight Squeeze "
copyright J.Bellinger 2012
ABC Mini Challenge painting "V" is for Valencia orange. A high key composition, simply designed. I wanted the focus to be on the juicy orange slices without background distractions.
Next time I paint orange or lemon slices from life I will keep a spray bottle of water handy...however once I realized the hot lights were going to dry things out it made me paint faster..a goal I continually work on. In the end, it takes what it takes!
