Michael Lynn Adams posted a neat demo on his site of a copper bowl filled with lemons. Beautiful work. You know I'm a sucker for glowy still lifes.
In case you're not already aware, yellow is a pain. I have such a time with it! But I keep trying to work with that quadrant of the color wheel because it has such life to it. Michael's demo is a sweet solution.
It also has another of my favorite juicy paint effects - halation. Halation is the bounce of strong light over an object, so that the light bleeds into the air around it. That red glow over the lemons is halation. It helps give the effect of "painting the air."
