In a lot of my previous paintings I have been experimenting with new styles or new subject matter. I have more to write about with those paintings because they are a learning experience and I want to share what I have learned.
Still life paintings are by far the easiest for me to create and therefore I don't have much to say about them. With today's painting the only comment I have is that originally the bowl was a creamy white color but the lemons didn't stand out enough because the color was too similar. I was surprised how much it changed the picture when I changed the color of the bowl to a very light blue. The background became a much warmer brown than what it appeared previously and the lemons really stood out as the focal point.
