I really like the vibrant colors of these apples! I took the photograph that this painting is based upon last year when the apples were ready to be picked in Hendersonville, NC. The reds were so beautiful! This is an 8 x 10 inch painting.
Carol Marine has initiated a group of artists to paint the same challenges. This is my submission which was to take one item, paint it numerous times, with a timer going to stop you when ten minutes was up. Notice how much better one gets as you go along. Great learning tool. To see them all or to purchase, go to this link
Last one on the bottom right is the final apple and I think the improvement is apparent. Practice does make perfect!
