6x6 inch original oil painting

I can’t remember the name of this fruit, but it makes a great subject for a still life. I believe this fruit is a cross between a tangerine and a grapefruit. They are similar to large oranges with an unusual top.

In my evening workshop this week the project was to paint still life compositions from life. One of the artists brought in several branches like this from a fruit tree in her yard and generously shared them with others to use in paintings.

After class she gave me several of these and I painted this the next morning while the leaves were still fresh. Now that I’ve painted them I can sample the fruit. Yumm.

Whatever they are they are very pretty. I really like the way you do leaves - they look like blades.
