The Last Clementine



The very nice thing is that all the food here in Tuscany is seasonal. The first clementines arrived in October and now the season is over; still good for oranges and lemons for another few weeks.

I do love painting these citrous fruits, not only because of their rich colour, but also for their staying power in a still-life. In the winter, oil paint is very slow to dry and I usually need another day to finish the painting because at a certain point I don’t like to work on a slimey paint surface.
