I almost kissed the edge twice in this one! Do these count? lol Also, realizing that I need to change my dark or shadow colors. I've been using Prussian Blue and either Burnt Sienna or an Umber. I'm going to start trying Ultramarine and practice mixing with yellows and reds. Hopefully, that'll help put some life into my shadow areas.
The composition could've been better, too. I've got a "row" of lemons, and then the spoon makes another row below it. All that said, I did enjoy painting this..... the reflection on the spoon, the transparency of the cut lemon, and the shape and feel of the mortar.
