Lemon in Oil pastel Dressing

I am back to challenges offered by the enthusiasts of art, I thank them so much!
This time it is Rookiepainter's 3 weeks challenge about the lemon and its slice.

I decided to do it in oil pastel and somehow on the way I added peaches, cherries, acid background, some solvent in shadows and the result turned out as real surprise for me. But this is my motto: enjoy the process first, result second. I do.

And thank you, Jen, for this opportunity to participate and to see the works of the talents on-line.


  1. I love the additions to did! And the different techniques make this a very interesting (& striking) piece of art.
