The Guardians


The Guardians
12x12x1" Oil on gallery wrapped canvas $150 Email me


Once again the lighting has been the primary motivator of this work. I am more interested in how the subjects look in the light, and the shadows cast by that light than in the subjects themselves. The results are subdued and more difficult to see because the edges are often lost in the shadows, but at the same time worthwhile, because the lighting evokes a different mood.



The edges of the canvas will be painted but I wanted to show you the shot of the angled canvas in hopes of getting the color of the cup correct in the photo. It is really more of a turquoise, which I think the computer cannot duplicate. Take my word, the cup is more aqua.

  3. The colors are great, I can really imagine all sorts of blues that would look wonderful, but the composition is what really jazzes me. I'm anthropomorphizing those lemons, I'm sure - but they look so cute to me!
    And yummy, too.

  4. Oh, yeah! Two light sources, and the table reflecting light back onto the lemons...I see why the lighting tempted you!

    I like the red edge on the front lemon, and the cup looks very shiny and reflective. Very nice.
