"Still Life with Limes"

"Still Life with Limes" 9"x12" Oil on CanvasBoard $200
The 98+ degree heat and 90% humidity put our painting group inside to paint today. Thank you, Leslie, for opening up your wonderful studio this morning!
Leslie artfully arranged this still-life and challenged me in color theory. At first glance what appeared to be the cool, purplish shadows began to morph into warmer, redder ones. I began to see "heat" in those cool shadows! Never-the-less, even a "frustrating" day of painting is still a great day!
