This is absolutely exquisite...
I love the "clouds" behind each piece of orange peel,on both sides of the fruit.
You are so amazing in the way you make fruit look so real.
Very painterly and very real. Real in the way that fiction can sometimes be more true than fact.
its so real ! makes you want to eat it . Well don . When are you traveling again I so enjoyed some of your Venice paintings.
Another beautiful clementine. Bravo, Julian!
A wonderful painting. I especially like the shadow parts of the peel.
