L'étude d'une orange




















I wanted to dust off the brushes a bit from my recent hiatus by painting a small alla prima study of an orange. Although I don't think I can call it alla prima anymore since I went back over the blue background this morning to lighten it up a bit. Oh well, I tried. It's tough to give up my layers. Now that I have the rust knocked off I'm planning on getting back to the Taylor portrait sometime this week.

Great to see that you are back painting again. The new medium I am using is great for alla prima by the way, although I am hopeless at it ;-)

I don't know which I like better, that periwinkle blue or the orange!
