Tango Tangerines Still Life Painting in Oil

Tango Tangerines by Marion Hedger
Still Life painting
Oil on MDF panel
Available  on DailyPaintworks

Another clementine painting, this time with a dark red/brown background. To keep the background translucent I mixed the paint with liquin. This was very effective and I think I will use this again. I also manage to keep the background from getting too heavy which is sometimes a problem for me. Different styles call for different approaches. When using my palette knife I generally like a highly textured thick background but I thought that would be too much for this painting.
