Still on my lemon yellow kick, this time I cut a branch from my neighbor's bush to pair deep red violet with the yellow. The bright flower centers are perfect for the color scheme. The light coming through between the lemons infused the shadows with lemon. I tried to execute the leaves and flowers simply to show off the lemons.
By the way, the branch was hanging over our fence--fair game for my clippers. This neighbor "shares" lots of his plants! That's okay---it gives me more subjects to paint!


  1. Wow! I really like this. The colors are so vibrant and rich. Well done!

  2. And this is exquisite!
    Great tiny flowers and the purple cast shadows. My favorite - so far.

  3. Love your work...your colors are so vibrant.

  4. Beautiful colors and movement in this. Nice neighbor!! :)
    Love your paintings!

  5. This is so good Karen - Love the split complementary colors - love the negative spaces!
