A picture with a splendid sense of humour! This clementine reminds me of a little cute dog head with its droopy ears!

Luscious colors and contrast, Julian.

Hi Julian, I follow your daily painting , you are a great inspiration to me! :) they are always very beautiful however I truly love these clementines...the color contrast is amazing. ciao!

Julian, the workshop schedule looks fabulous; but for now, I'll have to settle for this week's luscious clementines.

Dear Julian, am I right in thinking the "post Venice" paintings have acquired a special, juicy glow? There is an almost palpable fragrance emitting from the screen.
Just to be a little nerdier than usual: The clementine is so named after missionary Father Clement Rodier, who discovered the hybrid in the garden of his orphanage in Misserghin, Algeria in early 1900. The Chinese might disagree with the origins of said fruit!

Hi Julian

On November 11 we had a long shot of the clementines; today we have a close-up. I love the intense colour and rough, glistening texture that is brought out by the light. Alain's comment gives a delightful perspective to the centre clementine.

This is wonderfully close. (Much better than farther away.) Enchanting light and color.
