still life with lemon and blue bowl.

this picture was painted at the same time as the one below,it's oil on canvas, the biggest challenge was to get the white enamelled bottle to look convincing, I love the little flecks of colour in the shadows, (John McCartin, a painter friend of mine says, that when your painting, you should look for colour, and squint for tone.) both these pictures will benefit from a coat of varnish.

squinting - that's what my tutor used to say. these are two great paintings, roger.
