I have two lemon trees in the back yard that will be bearing two variety of fruit in the next fews weeks. I also have an orange tree. Hopefully, I will be able to get lots of subject matter for my paintings. This "Lemon Study" is on canvas, 8 x 10, oil. I used a heavier mixture of Stand oil and turp, about 50/50, for the background and just stuck with the Liquin Original for the lemon and the greens. This painting was made to viewed at from about 5 feet or so, so until I figure out how to do a proper photo the right size, click on the smallish painting to get the gist of viewing it from that distance.
