Oranges and lemons in acrylics

Here are a few small paintings and sketches of oranges and lemons using acrylic paints. I was trying to recreate the form and the texture of the fruits. The texture of the oranges was a bit more challenging and I ended up going over and over the oranges in these paintings in several layers, trying to get them right. I since watched a youtube tutorial on painting oranges so if I have a go at this subject again it’ll hopefully turn out better.

  1. Geraldine,these latest paintings are lovely. I,ve a tip for you,have you ever used a glazing medium?,you build up thin layers of glazes of paint,it gives a great feeling of depth,alternatively i would use crimson red and a rich yellow on top of one another.
