"Ethereal Lemons"

I tried to keep my brush strokes loose on all parts of this paintings. I think it gives the lemons a light airy feeling.

I bought some new fabric yesterday - this is one of the prints. I like the design but found it hard to paint. The actual design is much more intricate so I simplified it. Also, the lighter part of the fabric is shiny so it does weird things to light and reflections, and the swirl part is fuzzy. I bought 3 different fabrics and they are all this fuzzy, shiny material. I thought about not buying them because of their odd textures but I like the bright colors and interesting patterns.
