Hey lonely Clementine!

Clementines small painting!

A peeled Clementine or Tangerines you name it, was the task to sketch/paint. But I think the composition worked a little more if the Clementine is not peeled and gives a beautiful combination with a glass jar!

Een gepelde mandarijn was de opdracht om te schetsen of te schilderen. Maar ik denk in compositie opzicht is het mooier om de mandarijn in zijn geheel te schilderen, als extra dementie daarbij gebruik gemaakt van een glazen schaal!

The original acrylic painting: 4.5x4.5 inch loose canvas texture.
Click on the painting and you can see the details!

This is the first Virtual Sketch Date painting of 2009!

Gorgeous colours and a lovely take on the clementine. Did you use references or was this from imagination?

Love your interpretation.
I especially like the linear dimension of your highlights. Such detail on small painting.
Thanks for the view.

The color is fantastic.
Are you using a large square brush or a palette knife mostly?
Very beautiful.

Karel Tuinart said...
