This is so classy Petra, colour shape and texture, it's got the lot !!

Just off to Sainsbury's to buy some oranges for the St Clements ice cream I am making. I do hope I can get as beautiful specimens as you portray here!! Lovely work - so simple but really effective. Love the dark background which zings up the orange brilliantly.

Lovely, as always Petra, the deep blue background sets them off perfectly!

Beautiful deep colours, a lovely painting Petra.

I agree with the above: stunning! Beautiful colours and perfectly painted objects!

Superb as always and the use of red in the left hand relection is divine inspiration

They look good enough to eat, well done!!:)linda

Many thanks Debs, Thea, Christine, Glennis, Mia, Michael and Linda for your very kind comments, much appreciated

Hi petra you are very gifted beautiful work ..... John

Many thanks John for your very nice comment

Hi Petra Ros P here, just seen your great comments on my two recent cat pastel pet portraits, glad you had a smile at the moody faced kitten, it is a little character isn't it!, and glad you liked the look of my most recent happier faced grey cat, I had good fun with those two cats and in the case of the kitten putting emotion into the face is always bit more challenging, I love all your work you really are talented and this orange is really good example of that, so thanks again for your lovely comments xx

Many thanks Ros, it is always a pleasure to read your comments :)

Totally hooked on your work.......<br /><br />Peter

Many thanks Peter for your very kind comment
