Study of a Lemon

Completed in just under an hour, this 10 x 10 oil on canvas study of a lemon is a more expressive, playful piece. Revisiting my pop-art roots of pin striping a canvas and overlaying an image, I applied this process to my thesis subjects of fruits & vegetables.

Lemon Thumbnail


Every painting begins with a sketch. Here is a thumbnail of "Lemon", my current work in progress, taken from my sketch book. You can see how much the initial drawing evolves from its first stage into a final completed painting.

Lemon Study

* This painting has been sold
Arriving to my studio last week, a friend had picked lemons from her tree for me to paint. This is a 9 x 12 oil on canvas study for a current larger work in progress. Using the tools of dynamic symmetry and palette knife, "Lemon" is my most abstract piece to date.

Jalepeno

This 9 x 12 oil on canvas panel is one of the first of the series. This is evident in the experimentation of color, value and texture noticeable in this piece. Completed in Spring 2011 from natural light and a still life set up, it is a study for a larger painting.

Below is the full image of the 30 x 30 oil on canvas. The painting was done strictly using palette knife. The final piece from the 9 x 12 original study, "Cutie" is the first painting of the series to take a noticeable more abstract approach.
