Lemon on Wood - Dramatic Oil Painting

Daily Painting #361 – Lemon on Wood
(Click image for larger version)

Oil painting on hardboard
Approximately 5 x 7 inches — 13 x 18 cm

I’m not sure why but I had a very difficult time trying to get the colors to match the original painting and some parts are still a bit off. This is now #361 — getting really close to the “finish line”!

Orange with Harmonica Oil Painting

Daily Painting #342 – Orange with Harmonica
(Click image for larger version)

Oil painting on hardboard
Approximately 6 x 6 inches — 15 x 15 cm

We’ve had this Hohner harmonica for decades although I still haven’t learned to play it. I’ve always wanted to paint it because of its antique look, but I could never find the perfect composition for it. For sure I’ll be doing another painting which will feature it better.

By the way, I keep forgetting to mention that artist Monica Burnette recently talked about edges in paintings on her blog and she featured my “Grapes in Small Bowl” in one of her posts. Check it out here! Thank you, Monica!

I can remember when I was just starting out as a daily painter that I hated to do grapes. I thought then that they were just too difficult to paint correctly. Anyway, they are now a favorite subject of mine. I find it really gratifying to see the little berries come to life as I paint the bloom!

One of my most favorite painting of grapes that I have done is the one above. This will be the last grapes painting included in the 365 Daily Paintings so I thought I’d compile all that I have done since the beginning…well, let’s start with the second that I did since the first one was what made me hate painting grapes in the first place!

This is actually a Fuji apple without most of the pink and red streaks. When I saw that it was almost all yellow, I just had to paint it.

This was the first red papaya I’ve tried, and it was the best I have ever tasted — sweet and very refreshing. Given a chance, I may have been tempted to eat this particular papaya all by myself (it was about a foot long)!

Something not related to the daily paintings. Earlier this month, my brother David and I each entered 3 of our artwork to the A Singular Creation Portraits 2 Contest. I am thrilled that the oil portrait I did for Different Strokes from Different Folks was chosen as one of the 12 finalists. There were about 271 entries and there were many great paintings and drawings, so I am really honored that the judges chose my painting and one of David’s pencil portraits (both shown below).
