12 x 16 inches, oil on canvas
While I had this still life set up, I thought I'd try a vertical rectangle in addition to the square composition I painted first.
These oranges were really patient! They stuck with me for weeks - and I even ate one of them after I finished this today. So maybe they really were from outer space....orbiting. Hm.
Here's my progression from notan to a 4-value sketch to my underpainting to the finish! No shot of me eating the orange, though. Next time.
