Lemon on a plate

 Once I see the yellow school bus back on the roads, I know the warm weather is coming to an end pretty soon and that means I need to make the most of all the pretty flowers and fresh produce ! The lovely blooms in my garden are soon going to be gone, but then Fall will be here! The beautiful autumn colors make me just so happy! I love the warm sun which makes everything just glow with light. The soft haze is perfect for plein air painting.

Today I painted some cards. The  lemon on a plate was part of my prep for lunch. I saw the light falling on the table and decided to do a quick sketch. Since I wanted it to be fresh and quick, I picked just 3 primary colors.. yellow , ultramarine blue and alizarin crimson.

Here is a closer look...

Here is another one....fresh blueberries in a bowl..There were more on the table which  vanished by the time I finished painting....wonder where it went............!

Painting the bloom on the blueberries (white oxidation on the berries) was, no doubt, a challenge but it was a lot of fun. Each one different and unique!

These are now available on Etsy.

Sharing these cards with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge- food and /or drink.
