I REALLY like this painting of a tangerine. Orange and brown is one of the color combinations that I like best. I think they go very, very well together. I also like the contrast between the tangerine’s yellowish white pith and the dark background.

Again, this uses a limited palette of cadmium yellow lemon, burnt sienna, ultramarine blue and titanium white, but with the addition of cadmium red to make the orange color.

In the Cup of Chocolate painting I posted yesterday, I used just three colors plus white: burnt sienna, ultramarine blue, yellow ochre and titanium white. For this painting, I substituted cadmium yellow lemon for the yellow ochre. I like how both turned out. I feel that using a very limited palette gives a painting an overall harmony.

Also, yesterday was the first day that I didn’t finish a painting. I did use my oil paints and worked on a new portrait though. If you’ve been following the Different Strokes from Different Folks blog, the latest challenge is the Year-End Portrait Swap. Ms. Jurick gave all participants photographs of other artists to paint from.

I started mine yesterday and am nearly finished with the underpainting. So far, so good. Below is a peek of what it looks so far.

Well, here’s my 100th daily painting! I wanted to paint something special so this is bigger than the ACEOs I have been posting lately. I also searched quite a bit for that special subject and/or composition. At first, I thought I’d do another avocado like the first daily painting, but since I couldn’t get any avocados, I settled on oranges. I chose this composition because I think it represents “100” perfectly without being too obvious.

I’m dedicating this painting to my Mom, who encouraged me to do the daily paintings in the first place, and who’s been very supportive.

It’s been a good 100 days and I’ve learned so much about oil painting. I’ve been able to paint ordinary things which I never thought would have potential in a painting before. It’s truly a wonderful experience to slow down and examine details and all the beautiful things that God has created for us. Everything is beautiful!

There is still so much to learn, and my plan is to keep this up for at least a year. But we’ll see where it goes. One thing’s for sure though — I’m looking forward to the next 100! I hope you are too!

Thank you to friends and subscribers who left comments and gave their support! Also, many thanks to other daily painters, especially to Michael Naples and Painting-a-Day pioneer Duane Keiser, for the inspiration.

I think I’m in a green mood lately — after green chili peppers and green bell peppers, here are some green lemons.

I wasn’t sure if these were limes or just green, unripe lemons. I researched on the internet and found that limes are much denser and would sink in a bowl of water. These floated so I guess they’re green lemons.

I didn’t get a chance to post this earlier today. For this painting, I wanted to do a study of an orange flesh. I have done a few oranges before, but making the flesh look realistic and juicy was the most difficult to pull off. The background was inspired by yesterday’s eggplant painting.
