Daily Painting 484 Calamondin Orange Tree at Heathcote Botanical Gardens Plein Air

This is a cool tree at Heathcote, it has tiny, tart little oranges smaller than golf balls. There were more oranges on the ground than on the tree, I thought they looked interesting and I had to try to paint them. Below is my photo, Allie the head gardener took my picture. It started out pretty chilly, I have lots of layers of clothes. She let me have some of their pretty oxalis, thats whats in the cup. The painting is 8 x 10 and not available right now.
