to have work done on our porch which required
me to help clean it off. I also had to unpack and
layout all the wet tarps from Sundays wet show.
I had a new client visit at noon and it was my
pleasure to sell them a few paintings. Another
new client came at 5 to order a commission.
So it was a financially productive day, just not
painting productive. Oh, I forgot to tell you that
I won "favorite artist" award at Chadds Ford.
People walking around had to vote and I won
the most votes and $200!
Since I do not have a blog today I thought I would
share the painting I have been working on.

Step 1: my drawing... you can see the pencil lines
I consider this the most important part of my paintings.
Step 2: I started with thin washes of Cadmium Yellow
on all the lemons, painting around the areas I am
saving for highlights.
Step 3: I am now ready to go back into my lemons
with more depth and detail. Using a mixture of Cadmium
Orange and Permanent Rose I gradually painted in the
darker areas of the lemons, blending back into the yellow.
I stopped here. I will be doing this over all the lemons.
More to follow!
