Four Oranges

6 x 6"
oil on canvas on panel

I painted these oranges very slowly and carefully, with a small brush. By contrast, I painted the brass vase loosely, with a larger brush. I loved putting the splashes of orange in the reflective surface of the vase.

I love the way you've painted the gold vase in both paintings! So gorgeous! Really nice compositions, and colors too.

The surface of the oranges looks perfect to me!

These last two are so rich, Sarah.
