Lemons - student project

I had a lemon only so I painted it using Reeves gouache paint. First I drew out the silhouette with a micron pen. Then with paint, I used Lemon Yellow, Crimson to darken, White to lighten where needed, and mixed Ultramarine with some lightened LY to make the green for the end part of the fruit. This was a fun exercise and love the flexibility of gouache over watercolor. I need to work on blending and open to feedback, thanks!!!Lemons - image 1 - student project
