Lemon Miniatures

At the request of a friend, I'm currently working on a pair of small paintings that feature lemons. While the request was for one painting, I'm trying two very different backgrounds for variety. 

First, since I love the boldness of the yellow contrasted with dark shades of pink/purple -- and the colors complement each other -- I'm creating what I think of as an elegant theme for this one. 

Next, I'll be working with lemon on bright red satin. Very bold, color-wise, and should be an interesting match-up. 

Posted here is the beginning wash of the deep purple/lemon painting. I will start the second small painting shortly and post it as well. Perhaps we can see them evolve together.......
