lemon painting

Today was all about painting.

For the background of the lemon (that I painted yesterday) I mixed a soft salmon pink, just like our lemon tapestry on which this painting is based.

Applying the color neatly along the lines was even more work than painting the lemon itself.

Eventually some tiny dots here and there. Which I thought was quite a tricky job hahaha, the idea you can screw up everything.

Fortunately that did not happen and I am well pleased how the lemon turned out.

And even though the lemon was supposed to be placed on a tiny wall in the kitchen, Henk and I both agreed it should be placed in the corner of the daybed.

It totally looks like a fresh spring boost!

And THIS is where the inspiration came from.
