Two of a Kind 6x6 oil

My husband and I took a little trip to Ojai this past weekend with friends. We had a day before everyone else arrived and so I painted while he finished up some office work. These two tangerines were sitting on a table under lamp light. I loved the glow of the deep warm shadow side of the fruit.
I have been once again trying a new palette of color. I am taking a portrait painting class with Cynthia Grilli and am using her recommended palette. I'm using a number of transparent colors. I always seem to enjoy the exploration process of mixing and finding out what works. I have been a alla prima painter for the most part and with Cynthia I will be glazing. I must be patient.

I love the warmth of this painting. I've become a big fan of glazing and layering. I hope your class continues to go well!
