Mandarins 16x20

On this piece I was focusing mainly on brushstrokes, trying to keep them loose and consistent. I feel like the more I work on a painting (or the more I like it) I tighten up my brushstrokes, and the painting loses all of it's energy. I guess that could also be why I usually like my paintings halfway through, and then hate them at the end. I do not hate this one, I finally feel like I touched on something that I want to pursue. I was also experimenting with using more medium, and I'm really glad I did, it made everything look so much also made everything shine a lot more, and that's always a good thing :)
