Oranges, decoys revisited

What a busy week.  I am revisiting this work as I had the drawing all wrong.  Now the size and shape are better, the values better, but it still lacks pizazz! Oh, another learning experience.

Last week I had a duck call in this work on the left as you look........but I could not get it on the same plane as the decoy......and I tried.  So the ultimate answer.......paint it out. This works pretty well as a very traditional painting.

For class, Sandra threw a bunch of oranges on the table and then some lemons. Love lemons............not so much the oranges. But what a fun painting. It is all about the those bright little lemons just showing how they glow.
