Lemons...


Een paar studies van citroenen. Hoeveel kleuren heb je nodig om een citroen te schilderen? :)
A couple of lemon studies. How many colours do you need to paint a lemon? :)

Hallo Judy:) Geweldig geschilderd! Het licht en de achtergrond zijn heel mooi. Ik denk dat je toch wel 6 kleuren hebt gebruikt voor je gele citroenen:)

Hi Judy. Wonderful work. I've some oranges in the fridge and I'd like to paint tomorrow these oranges. They have beautiful big leaves. These oranges are typical from Mallorca. Best regards!

Tito said...

La bellezza dell'arte della leggerezza! Magnifici i tuoi limoni, Judy! Ciao.
PS : sorry for the Italian!

Betty said...

They are beautiful, lovely colours. Thankyou so much for our help with the watermark too. Bettyx

Judy said...

Hoi Renate! Ik tel er ook 6! Was wel grappig, ik zag in de citroenen steeds meer kleuren :)

Thank you Jane!

Hi Vicki, thanks for your visit! I tried to "loose some edges", glad you like it!

Thank you Sidmar!

Muchas gracias, Feli!

Merci beaucoup, Martine. Bisous!

Hi Sonia! Inspiration is in the fridge! Wonderful that the leaves are still on, looking forward to your painting!

Thank you Tito! Never mind the Italian, it is such a beautiful language, it sounds like a poem! I wish I could speak it. And there is always google translation.

Hi Betty, thank you! I'm glad to help. I hope we can figure out how to make a template!

Hello Judy,I love your lemons and your beautiful interpretation of light!!!

Tina Moriano said...

No sé cuantos colores se necesitan para pintar un limón, pero has pintado una acuarela impresionante. Felicidades!

Cynthia Schelzig said...

yes I love the open contour on the top one,,,then I scrolled down to see the three of them...beautiful clean yellows...just gorgeous!

Cynthia Schelzig said...

had to take one more glance before leaving...tooo beautiful but I see that technically speaking I guess I can´t classify it as an open contour elsewise the paper behind it would also be white but whatever it is...me liketh mucho:)sehr schööööön!!

Ingrid Ormestad said...

Light and a soft mood is lovely.

Pat said...

Gorgeous lemons, Judy.
Love all the colours within, you've certainly brought them to life! xx

John Simlett said...

Wow, Judy! That really is so clever - how you can produce so much from a limited pallet I'll never know.

You never fail to amaze me - they are better than real lemons :0)

I feel a Gin & tonic coming on!!

Judy said...

Hello Rita, grazie mille!

Tina, muchas gracias!

Cynthia, thank you and thank you again! Glad you like the lemons!

Thank you Ingrid!

Hi BJ, it must be, love your pears!

Thank you Maria!

Hi Judy, these lemons look fab! Everybody seems to have been really taken with them.

Anns Art said...

Very good!

Jane said...

Your lemons are luminous and wonderfully fresh, great work !

Sandra said...

Well these are just about the most mouth watering lemons I have ever seen :0) I LOVE the trio particularly and all the subtle colours you have used within the yellow :0)

Laura Leeder said...

They sparkle with life! Well done!

Studio at the Farm said...

These are beautiful lemons, Judy! I do admire the softness you've achieved, and the subtle richness of the lemon colors.

Maga Fabler said...

Citrus fruits bathed in sunlight. Beautiful misty watercolors.

Judy said...

Jarnie, Ann, Jane, Sandra, Laura, Kathryn, Maga, thank you so much!

Anamaria do Val said...

That's a good question: how many colours you needed? A lot, I think and the result is fabulous! Love the colored shadows! xx

Lydie said...

Quelle lumière !!! c'est magnifique et magique, j'ai l'impression de sentir les rayons du soleil.

Blaga said...

Yellow on yellow, perfect colors and light! Great exercise in painting yellow objects - not an easy thing.
Thank you for the reference to Jackie's blog. A really interesting post on abstracting.

John (JWJarts) said...

Lovely fresh zingy painting Judy. Beautiful depiction of light. Very nice.

Annet said...

Zo zie je maar weer, het is niet gewoon geel. Prachtig schilderwerk.
Groet, Annet

Judy said...

Hi Anamaria, thank you, I like them too.

Hi Lydie merci, most objects that I paint from life are situated in my windowsill so they have backlight.

Hi Blaga thank you, this was fun and easier than I expected. And they look surprisingly good on the screen, not pale at all.

John, thank you!

Annet, dankjewel voor je bezoekje, mooi geel is niet lelijk, zullen we maar zeggen! :)

AtelierBrigitte said...

Prachtig, fris geel zijn ze geworden! Mooi!

Anita said...

I love these sunny lemons - they just speak of summer and sunshine days!

Judy said...

Dankje Brigitte!

Thank you Anita!
