This painting went through a lot of iterations because I couldn't figure out what was wrong with it - I ended up simplifying the background significantly - it had lots of shadows and folded cloth and it was too busy. You would think that the lemons and the reflections would be the hardest part, but I had more trouble with the background.
I've been averaging a painting every day or two for a while now - it's a fantastic feeling!
