Limes and Lace

"Limes and Lace"
6" x 6"
Oil on canvas panel
One week when limes were plentiful, I filled a crystal vase with them and had it ready to photograph on a piece of cut work lace. It seemed all too round, with the vase, the holes and a bunch of limes, so I cut into one.  Perfect.

This is a study to see if I can get the color for the limes right.  They look right in my studio light.  I'll work on the actual piece over the next few weeks.  The vase is going to be the hard part now. Although, I've painted it many times before.

Thank you for stopping by.

  1. This piece has a wonderful design and the colors are great. I love the corner fold of fabric with just a touch of pattern showing.

    1. Thank you Julie. I struggled to make the lime colors right, so I must have accomplished it!

  2. This is beautiful in its simplicity. I really like the shadow of the lace. Really lovely!
