Artist's description:

A striking still life painting depicting a glass bottle with richly hued fruit contrasting strongly against a dark ground. This painting was inspired by an abundant crop of lemons in the back yard, their beautiful vibrant colour glowing against the dark green foliage of the trees. To create this work I began with a deep brown ground, slowly working over it in transparent glazes of blue, to create the background colour. For the lemons I applied several layers of transparent yellow and orange paint (letting each layer dry before applying the next) to achieve the rich, resonant vibrancy of the fruit.
