Very nice work but I would make the slices lemon shadow black. Love all the details...creative work.
Most excellently crafted . . . I'll take mine with a "shot" of tequila
The Lemon shadow is black & what is in the BG is a real grenade to add emphasis to the lemon being an actual grenade also...well that's my opinion
Thanks everyone for your kind comments. The blurred black thing in the bg is the granade on which my work is based - it's a good contrast on the elsewhere bright image and intensifies the left border of the "lemon" (yellow on white doesn't worked for me). The shadows / reflections are from the lemon soure by the way.
Congrats on the win, Tom. Great to see you again.
awesomeness; i miss seeing the art by the "old school masters" - like yourself - from yesteryears. : )
