Clementines With Leaves, oil on canvas, 14″ x 18″ $900.

About this painting…

I’ve been working with a new palette, very different pigments for me.  The colours are more saturated, juicy, so it’s fitting to create a still-life setup and theme that maximizes the paint’s qualities.  I worked on the painting over a week.  The fruit was refrigerated after each sitting, but the leaves dried out.  A few snaps taken before beginning the painting allowed me to retain the freshness by referring to them periodically.

How do you keep your still life compositions “fresh”? …I’d enjoy hearing about it.  Leave your comments below.

Here are a few details of the painting, “Clementines With Leaves”

About the Author:

Capturing light to render it’s effects is one reason Roxanne loves to create art. Preferred subjects for her oil paintings are the human form, florals in their environment, still life including teacups and satin bows, skyscapes and hot air balloons. Her current focus is the figure in portrait painted with a view to expressing emotion by capturing light and rendering it’s effects. With a painting career spanning 20 years, Roxanne completed her Fine Arts degree at Concordia University in 1998.  An exhibitor in numerous group and solo exhibitions, Roxanne’s original artwork has won several awards, hangs in collections internationally and has been published in InternationalArtist.com Magazine. A finalists in the 2008 fine art competition Roxanne’s painting L’Habilleuse was featured in the November 2009 issue of The Artist’s Magazine’s Competition Spotlight. Roxanne is currently developing a body of work for exhibition in 2019. Spring 2018 she attended an art workshop given by David A. Leffel, Sherrie McGraw and Jacqueline Kaman of The Artists Guild in Santa Fe. Roxanne traveled to Italy in 2013 to attend artist David Jon Kassan’s workshop at the JSS in Civita Castellana.
