This is a tangerine or orange we got from the grocery store... can't tell but has an interesting shape... round at the bottom and conical at the top. Anyway here it is.

This is roughly 5x6 inches. So it is rather small. (I am noticing that Stand Oil works best with the Nylon brushes I have, the paint literally glides). Took 3 hours to complete.

Please don't hesitate to provide suggestions,... Feedback is how we will all grow.

Take Care

Very nice and realistic. I like the gloss on the orange, too.

Looks like a funny shapped tangerine to me! The shadows are good, too.

I think their just giving you a hard time. It sure looks like a tangerine to me. Thanks for the about the nylon brushes with the stand oil. I've avoided using stand oil for quite a few years now, but I'm not sure why. probably because it may have bothered my breathing.I still have some so maybe I'll give it a try again.

Dayle-
Thanks... Yes! I believe it is called a Tangelo, and it is conical at the top and round at the bottom. Take Care. Smile

Judy-

Yes! Just one to 2 drops. That should do it. Let me know how it goes. I will give you the brand of my brushes if you wanna know. Take Care... Smile

Judy-

I use a dropper to drop the stand oil on my paint. I find it easy this way...

Thanks Dayle and MG. The brand of brushes would be great. I have to check if I even have the stand oil with me. I don't always bring everything with me between houses.

One more thing... I am noticing that during painting if I have to wash my brush in water, it is always good to wipe the brush and then dip it in the stand oil and wipe the brush to put a coat of stand oil... this way things don't get tacky on you...

Take Care

MG
