Minimize Stroke Exercise - Citrus

20 cm x 15 cm, Oil on Board

An exercise to stop working arbitrarily and only do considerate brushstrokes. It helps to mix the correct color on the palette rather than mixing on the painting (by applying plenty of brushstrokes to correct the original errors). Goal is to create a cleaner, more appealing mosiac of colors representing the subject.

This is my first approach to this - I needed 101 strokes.
