A Pair of Friends


Although I told you a few days ago that I was starting a cityscape series, I just can't tear myself away from still lifes like this one - my favorite citrus. I just find them delightful to paint, especially orange and grapefruit - the sun reflecting in the fruit is a feast of inspiration on snowy winter days like today.

  1. Dear Elena
    As always I love your citrus paintings.. the light and reflections that you capture are always amazing. Am I right in thinking that you don't actually do a specific underpainting of one colour across the whole canvas initially, but you 'draw' your objects and tonal contrasts etc with paint first? Also, the white in your paintings appears so white, so am wondering how you achieve this?
    Have a lovely Christmas.
    Warm wishes
