100 Starts – Number 85

Lemons have been one of my favorite subjects to paint for this project and I don’t always have one in the house. So since I did today, I chose it for my subject along with the little coaster that I also enjoy. And to create an analogous color scheme I used a green paper to tie things together.

I love this little study! The shapes are so simple that it would pretty much just take a bit of halftone detail to turn the form of the lemon and it would be a complete painting. I definitely see why so many people paint fruits and vegetables — it can be such a satisfying win.

Now that I’m in the home stretch I wanted to start posting these daily. The previous studies can be found here.
