Every new painting is a challenge. I didn't think I did a 'good job' with this one until I got some distance from it. The little highlights on the limes looked 'just wrong' as I was painting close up but continued to paint until I was exhausted and completed the painting. I walked away from it for a few hours and when I viewed it again from a bit of distance, it was just peachy ...the highlights sparkle...and I'm happy.
