KUMQUAT AND AMBER

Diane Mannion, Kumquat and Amber, #26, 3.5x2.5" oil on linen/mounted
SOLD
Practice

This kumquat was picked from a neighbor's tree in the morning and painted fresh in the afternoon. 
 
Painting these tiny snippets is excellent practice.  Whether painting still life, plein air landscapes, or figurative works... it's all practice.  Sometimes they paint themselves, sometimes they're a struggle.   This one painted itself and I'm pleased with the result.

Thanks, Margaret! Your paintings have been looking mighty fine this month. Will be glad when this challenge is over, though.
