  This is a 5"x7" painting.  I tried to get a neutral shadow color.  Comments welcome.

Hey, KathyK, nice work.  Bight lemon yellow. 

Best part is the blue band on the towel. Looks so real.  Nice background, too.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Another lovely painting Kathy and I too was struck by the blue band on the towel.  Very life like.  Another thing that caught my eye in your recent paintings are your backgrounds which are vibrant and really complements the focal point.  It is very reminiscent of Sharon's backgrounds which are always bright and alive.  Good job Kathy, keep it up.

Sharon:  That background was just what this painting needed to pop the blue stripe.   :thankyou:

 :heeha: Love your lemons Kathy, another thing I can't get here!  We get 'limons' which we call limes. The oranges are 'naranjas' are green skinned!  :doh:

Go figure!  :2funny:       Well done!  :clap: :clap: :clap:

 :thankyou: Val.  I have been painting these little 5"x7" paintings.  I can finish them before I get too tired.  I have never seen limons.  I would like to see them.
