Seville Orange Marmalade

Seville Orange Marmalade
Oil on Board (6x8in)

I painted this small still-life a few days ago.  Seville oranges are available in the supermarkets for such a short season.  These bitter oranges make wonderful marmalade which is one of the essential ingredients on any breakfast table here in the Uk.  I thought I would add this to the daily paintworks challenge: 'paint it and then eat it', in this case, make it, paint it and then eat it........ preferably on thickly buttered toast!

  1. I love your orange color, and remind me I am leaving home for Sevilla in exactly 15 days.
    Very nice painting.
