Garden 101 Series #4 - Orange Segments oil painting

Garden 101 Series #4 - Orange Segments
still life oil painting by Marion Hedger
5"x7" oil on canvas board
This one is of three orange segments balanced against one another. I placed them on glass so that some of the reflections would be part of the compostion. I was quite pleased with this one, although I do need to become more precise with my brush strokes - but that's the rub isn't it? How to do that and still remain loose and lively. I did not draw this one first but used diluted acrylic paint to mark the outline. It was painted on a white ground.
