Pickle and some Slices-SOLD- (Click here to see auction results on eBay)


SOLD

This is just about the same set up as the lemon, but this one worked as good as I hoped it would. I think the loosness of the whole pickle is just enough to be believable as a realistic pickle, and I saved the tight rendering for the slices and their seeds. There's just enough indication in the juice puddles and cuts in the wood to create a believable background. Click on the image for a closeup view.

I love these dramatic lighting situations you're starting to use.

Without a doubt, you are the best painting a day painter. I find others TOO colorful, TOO bland, or not following the rules. I think you have a genuine center of interest - where the lightest light meets the darkest dark. The light coming through the lemon is perfect. Then, after you see the center of interest, you go to the half lemon in shadow. All the detail you put in show you take more time with your work, not just try to fool the public. You are an artist!

Beautiful work and a sense of humor, too! A bit of advice, don't get rid of the "crappy old cutting board". Such character.
