I have always loved painting citrus fruits. I saw these in the store the other day, and was immediatley drawn to the beautiful leaves. They have a great waxy green color to them.
For this painting, I really have tried to paint stroke by stroke. If left to it, I really do love getting in the surface of the painting, and moving things around. Although if I do that, I find that I’m not nearly as happy with it, and it looses some of the freshness that it may have had before.
