Plate of Lemons,still life,oil on canvas,6x6,price$200

Today's painting of "Plate of Lemons" was painted of the same lemons of yesterday but I used outside natural light. Yesterday's Lemons had an indoor floodlight on them. The image was taken outside under gray skies. The lemons in the painting are way more yellow then this image. I will take another picture of it again in sunlight soon.

Mt Baker Valley,landscape,oil on canvas,5x7,price$150

This was a demo for one of the classes I gave. I did an under painting of the values then put in the colors staying in the same values. I don't paint that way for myself. I just think about the value of the pure colors that I will use. Also I fixed the sail on yesterday's boat painting so it looks as if it has the wind in it.

I changed the background on this painting. I like the way it pops.I think changing the background might have made the flowers look cut out. So I'll have to fix that by softening the flower edges a little.
