What a remarkable geometric shape made by the two main leaves which modulates the whole subtle depth and spaces of the painting!There is a space "before" (left clementine and cloth) and a space "behind" made up with the two other clementines and the rest of the leaves. Masterful!
I didn't think it possible, but I like this one even more than it's immediate clementine predecessor!
Oh, I like this one better than the preceding one! Love that touch of blue on the left side. Most unusual composition - one I would never ever think of, in my wildest dreams! Many thanks, Julian, for the visual treat. Needed that today on this dreary cold grey day with a forecast of more snow to come.
Julian, Clementine season indeed. A great opportunity to capture those vibrant almost waxy textures and colours. They really allow an artist to study form, light and deep shadows. An excellent study for any artist.
Great! I, too, like this even better.
i love this one! I echo every previous comment.The touch of blue and the rhythm of line are compelling.The composition is ":over the top"!
Hi Julian a cold morning here in my part of the world , but these clementine paintings warm the heart! This is "All Good" , love what Alain had to say , the form and colour is fantastic , but the best part for me is the shadow how you have separated the fruit , Masterful. Thanks again a bright spot!

The stroke of blue is a master touch, this is an excellent picture.
