Moving Things Around a Bit

Better paint those clementines quick around my house - before they disappear! I moved my still life set-up to a different room/different light today: directly in an east-facing window though this morning our skies were fairly gray. I didn't use any artificial light which created the backlighting challenge I've explored recently. And, because I was looking towards the window, my palette and panel were in semi-shadow. Tricky but fun. There was a glow of reflected light on the downward plane of each clementine that was just so lovely.

Beautiful colors. I like the blues and your shadows and reflected light. All of it--good.

Really nice job, Mitzi. The looseness is great, and I especially like the plate. See you soon.
