Session #267, Work #263

I had so much fun with the last painting, dealing with duality of light and shadow on the same subject, that I wanted to try something similar but with colors that were very unnatural. Basically I wanted to see if my current palette could capture the intensity of this lemon yellow in direct light and shadow. Also the green parts of the lemon squeezers were super intense unnatural colors also, I think the intensity of those colors were the hardest to capture.

 

I think I accomplished the intensity of the yellow, but the green still looks much more dull than the subject.
