First Lemons

On a grey rainy day what could be more welcome than lemons.  These look to me to be summer lemons at the beach.  It's my first try at high key painting, and I had fun with it.  The trick to high key painting is to use straight white to get a lighter shade.  Then the rest of the colors in the piece follow suit. It can be a bit tricky, not what I'm used to at all.

Lemons and Easter always go together at our house; lemon pie, lemon poppy seed bread, lemon bars.  It is a rite of spring, always fresh and bright. Somehow better than chocolate...well, maybe!

So today it's lemons!  We should all make lemonade I guess.
Hope this wakes up your day!  To Bid Click Here
