The DPW challenge this week is to paint citrus, and a photo was included if we wanted to use it. I decided to give it a try with the acrylics, thinking it wouldn't be too hard, right? It's not called "challenge" without good reason! Looking through my collection of pastels and choosing colors for a painting is so much easier than mixing liquid paint to find the right color. But I fiddled with it and fiddled with it until I decided it was done. (Or I may have given up.) I'll share the original challenge photo, and what finally ended up on my canvas.
Here's what we had to work with.
