Orange on Linen

My neighbors brought some great oranges home with them after a recent trip south and I found myself with a bagful of some real beauties. Of course my first thought was STILL LIFE!!!! Yes they are delicious and sweet but those glossy leaves and the rich color begged to be painted first. I took reference photos and have two larger watercolors planned. This one is a study for one of them. The cloth is a lovely old embroidered linen table scarf which has featured in other still lifes. This piece is 6″x6″ and is watercolor on paper. SOLD
