20 x 16 inch oil "Oranges in Cello"

I have been admiring this photo on Wetcanvas for some time so I took the plunge and tried it in oil. I am happy with the results although I still have some finishing touches to make. I will probably make the background a warmer, richer brown and punch up the hightlights on the oranges, but overall I think it was a success. Since it is oil I will wait a couple of months before coating it with a gloss varish. I have the perfect vintage gold frame that it will be going into.
