I think I will call these little clementines done. I've learned a lot about the color orange here, and had a good time painting. However, it's been a while (a whole week!) since I have worked on a figurative piece, and I am ready to get back to one. Perhaps what I have learned so far with this 'dead color' method will carry over into the figures, too. I plan to keep painting these little stills as well; they are fun little projects and are satisfying.
Also, it is my birthday today!
