This small painting was a joy to paint! Why a lemon and strawberries with a ceramic swan? I don't know, but I love the combination of colors, and also it's design. The shape of the leaves compliment the shape of the swan's neck, and follow the flow of it's "feathers".
I'm sorry to say I didn't take any "in progress" photos while I was working on this, I thought I did! I usually always do, because I like to look back and see my work as I go along. Sometimes once I'm done with a painting, I don't remember what day I started it, or changes I made, etc. and I can look back at the pictures to remind myself.
