Meyer Lemons – A Short Video Demo

 • Meyer lemons are wonderful. They have a magic balance of tart and sweet. Perfect for making all manner of tasty treats. My favorite? Margaritas! The bounty of lemons arrives in late fall to early winter. I love that summer sunshine is packed in these beautiful fruit. These lemons were picked from a tree in our back yard and sliced in front of our kitchen window. The window faces south inviting the sunlight to flood in.

DEMO NOTES:
0:10 – Pencil drawing on primed canvas
0:17 – Blocking in the dark areas using primarily raw umber
0:18 – Blocking in the middle tones leaving the highlight areas white.
The middle tones will remain a little darker than the final. This gives me room to play with the values and as I refine the painting.
0:34 – Refining through blending middle tones, deepening the shadows, adding details, and laying some highlights.
Note that the highlights at this stage are not pure white. I only use pure – or close to pure – white as my final strokes.
0:40 – Final refinement of details, edges and highlights.
