Green Grapefruit Martini

Green Grapefruit Martini. Original oil on panel, 6" x 6".
This is another study done with an eye toward The Project. The Hillyard trip was the gift that keeps giving, this time with a fantastic green Depression Glass mini martini, and a peeler with sweet striped wooden handle. What a great contrast all that old green stuff made with the pink grapefruit and "slate" linoleum! I've also been playing with the lighting as I go. This is probably the most neutral light I've found, somewhere between "bright white" and "daylight" at 4500k.

I was happy enough with this one to make it my banner image.
