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!
