The Orange by PlaidTidings The Orange by PlaidTidings
project: paint a very large (3ftx3ft) close-up of an object you can fit in your hand.

My first endeavor into oil paints, and undoubtedly still my best. I adore this piece, and am so so so happy to finally have a picture of it!

Done with oil paint on canvas.


Edit: It's an orange!!! That's why it's called "The Orange"

Yes, the picture is very yellow... that's a combination of a washed out digital photo, and the simple fact that not all oranges look like the crayon by the same name.


_____________________
EDIT: Got tired of people asking me why it's a lemon, or saying that my orange wasn't orange colored, so I adjusted the color. And I swear, if I hear one more comment about how the color isn't right...

Thanks! :D

It was weeks of work to finish, but it was interestingly therapeutic working with oils

If you read my comments on the piece, you'd know.

Thanks for looking

Mmmmm...juicy

No, no...seriously. Yap! That's the power of oils and traditional art! The colouring and idea of concentrating on one fruit only...very nice!

It reminds me of hot summer afternoons...

I really love the subtle textures in the orange! And you're totally right; it has more of a yellow appearance but not all oranges look exactly alike. Very nice painting!

I got those textures by dabbing the paint with one of those Bounty paper towels, with the little circle patterns on it... worked so nicely :D
