I believe art is to be shared. I have gained so much from others sharing their art experiences and knowledge, I thought this blog would be a great way for me to give something back.
Please be reminded that the photo colors may slightly vary due to a digital camera's results and depending on your monitor. I do retain the reproduction rights to this artwork.

Daily Painting Practice- Painting Lemons
I usually have more progress photos than this. However this time I just sat down and painted so I only have the set up picture and the final.

Lemon Light 5"x7" oil on canvas board
This was a great practice piece. I used a spot light this time because the light outside was so weak. I think it helped make the painting more dramatic. Three things that often lead to bad paintings, and all of them have to do with weakness. 1. weak center of attention - no story is being told in the painting. 2. weak lighting - no drama 3. weak paint application- lack of boldness or confidence by the artist.
Remember, the meek shall inherit the earth. The weak get zip.
