Oranges and other citrus fruits are some of my most favorite subjects to paint. I guess one of the reasons is because I get to use my cadmium yellow paint more. I love that color!

Another color that I also like to use is phthalo blue. I like how it makes a painting more energetic and spontaneous. My brother, David, tells me that I used way too much phthalo blue for the shadow in this painting. I agree with him, but I think I like it that way…
