Revealing - update
I've done a little more work on this clementine. Its a fine line to keep the light in the fruit and make it believable. Citrus has such a high water content, light shining through it is almost the same as water, making it translucent and reflect colours.
This image was taken earlier this afternoon and I've added more detail to the piece since. However, I find it really difficult, even with good lighting to get true colours of this painting. Some colours just don't seem to photograph well under certain light conditions.
This afternoon the symptoms of a cold suddenly arrived out of the blue. I hope it moves past quickly, as colds can sometimes knock the desire to paint right out of me.
