This painting is part of Fragments of Spain, a collection I created, capturing the images, flavours, smells and sights of Barcelona, where I was born. This painting is the companion piece to Sombra (Shade). It reveals the inner life of a lemon in its glory, with the sun enhancing its complexity, colours and the waxy nature of its skin. I love the way in which the light creates a rich shadow around it and deepens its colours.
