These limes looked like they had a purpose. As if they were on their way to some destination.
I love these last two paintings. Several of the things I strive for came together. One of the things I did with these two was to try and use the Munsell Color Wheel. I learned about it in a class I took from Carol Marine. The idea is you pick a dominant color then use a little of each color on either side of the wheel and a tiny bit of the color on the opposite side of the wheel. Clear as mud? Look at the wheel I linked to. My dominant color for this painting is orange. I used a little red and a little yellow. Red and yellow are the colors on either side of orange on the wheel. Then I used a tiny bit of blue which is the color opposite from orange on the wheel. I didn't stick with it exactly obviously but keeping the ideas in the back of my mind helped make a nice color combination I think.
Edited Picture I'm having a hard time getting a good photo of this painting. I think this picture more closely shows the true color.
