Outdoor Still Life - Well Sorta

"Lemon in Morning"

When the weather gets nicer I want to paint still life setups outside on my deck which faces the east and gets morning light.  I'd like to capture more color and reflected light than what I usually get with an indoor setup. Just need to mix it up a bit.

It's still cold and windy here in northwest Denver so this lemon was outside on a piece of pink construction paper (shhh - don't tell my granddaughter I used a piece of her sacred construction paper).  I sat inside at my table by the window and painted through the glass.  Hey, worked for me.  I'll be all ready when the warm weather comes.
