"Lemon & Limes" by Jonathan Aller

"Lemon & Limes"
7 x 5 in
Oil on Canvas Panel
This composition was fun to arrange, playing with the limes wrapping around the lemon was a joy especially having the one lime on top.  Its almost as if they're trying to take over the lemon and conquer it.  The colors are also a nice note to add, they are both close in chroma's and play off of each other pretty well.  The top lime was a challenge to keep still, its always fun to see how far you can push the limits of these guys.  Painting the lemon was a treat, creating textures and highlights is always beyond fun to do.
