Lemon with Earthenware Jar
This was a particularly challenging painting exercise because the citrusy subject bears more resemblance to a grapefruit than it does to its smaller counterpart, and therefore no matter how well it was rendered, it was never going to look much like a lemon (or indeed, you might say that the the painting was always going to be a lemon).
That the lemon appears not to be lemon reminds me of a very old joke relating to the second object.
