Lemon Slice

6"x4" oil on raymar panel. Lemon flesh is cooler than you think. People have a preconceived notion that lemon pulp is a warm yellow when it can actually be cool. Of course, the surroundings and light source influence it and, of course again, if you chase the cooler yellow for accuracy the poor lemon slice can look quite sickly. After just using "of course" twice in a sentence, all I can say, of course, is that I tend to warm my lemon yellows a bit. Can you tell that English may not have been my favorite subject?
