Sunkissed Tangerine Painting Number 5

The funny part of this painting was the fact that it started out as a sketch and then I ended up really giving it some thought and making changes as I went along.

I was going to eat this tangerine and when I pulled it out of the refrigerator it has those interesting leaves still on it and I thought it would make a nice easy sketch.  I did the quick original painting and then noticed the sun coming in the window and creating such nice shadows so I darkened the other side, lightened the sun side and darkened the tangerine shadow.  I probably overdid the sun coming in the window but I like it.

Gee, I am loving this challenge!

I like the way that you have captured both the tangerine and the light. Very effective.

I love the warmth in this one, too---and those sun-drenched colors!

Love the saturated colors and the strong feeling of warmth conveyed by the color choices - very nice, Teri!
