Oil study #63

For this one I tried to leave the brush strokes alone (not retouching them) as much as possible. That allowed me to avoid getting into trouble like I did yesterday. I like the looser look.

BTW: The yellow in the shadow of the lemons is not that strong in the actual painting.
I still have to learn a lot about photography as well :-)

I like the looseness, too. The oranges in the previous post are well done. You are making great progress!
