Feel like I could reach out and pick it up! Sunny!
This instantly cheered me up! No clear, clean colours here right now.
Your background is unusual and intriguing!!! Love it!!!
The blues are just perfect for this luscious lemon! Which blue did you use? Absolutely wonderful.
Gorgeous and Cheery Julian! I'm loving these striking blue backgrounds!
Vermeer would have liked your painting, Julian. Very nice.
Thank you for the beauty, the inspiration and the goal.
Hi Julian, crisp as your thoughts, certainly You know what you want to paint. Very pure colors, a small capolavoro! By the way now i paint on arches oil paper,that i found wounderful, I even put on 16x20 stretcher bars, after 12 minute immersion in lukeworm water. Handles beautifully. Thanks for your tip a while ago.
is it cobalt blue and white perhaps ?? a cheery painting indeed.
I perceive the lovely shapes of the lemon, the leaves, and the textures of the background as a study in composition. Fabulous. I could almost (note I said almost) pretend to see it in black in white. But then the stupendous colors of blues and yellows really do win my heart. Thank you Signor Julian for again allowing me to feast my eyes and spirit!
Freshness ! Crisp Leaves and Fresh Lime !! Freshness, Thy Name is Julian !! Great, please keep up this re-freshing saga ... - with lot of love and appreciation, from India - Mahendra
