Pushing myself to do other types of paintings in oil - WAY out of my comfort zone!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS and a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR to all!!

Ok, so, don't laugh!!  I hear you laughing!!
I'm trying to expand my horizons by not only painting in oils, but also trying to teach myself how to paint still lifes.  Here are a couple of little ones I've been working on in the last couple of days.  The apples aren't finished yet, but the lemon is done.  I actually based the lemon in with a palette knife with was a lot of fun, and then touched it up with a brush.  Does it look like a lemon?  LOL...

Deleted the apples photo because I'm in the process of finishing it up.  Will  post a photo when it's dry.  It came out pretty good!

Like the way you have captured the lemon especially the texture.

Wish you & your family a very Happy Christmas.

Thank you very much, Shelley!! Wow, that piece was done a very long time ago. I hope you were able to view my more recent paintings!
