This painting is a smaller study of a larger painting that I will start in the next few days. I may do a few more smaller studies of other parts of the new painting. The branches in the back are in the same family as the eucalyptus. I bought them at Whole Foods and then dried them recently. They have the same smell, but are different in shape. When dried they have a sage green color to them, but have a pink/red color in the branch and on the leaf. After looking at this finished painting I will make adjustments to the larger painting. For example using a smaller lemon slice. The large slice takes over a little too much.
