Tole Lemons on a varnished black mount board background.
Tole painted Lemons.
These Lemons are painted using the following paint colours, Lemon Yellow, Cadmium Yellow, Cadmium
Orange, Burnt Sienna, Ultramarine Blue, Naples Yellow, Titanium White and
The brushes used were 1/2" One-stroke brush, a Rigger and a mop brush.
Clear Painting Medium is used to help with blending of the oil paint and smooth finish. Once
the colours are properly applied to the Lemons, then blending is the
important stage to achieve the roundness of the fruit. Pat blend with the
flat brush or if you have a problem or prefer a smoother finish then I find a
water colour Mop brushes/long soft
haired blender brushes are valuable tools to gain the desired effect.
