An Apple A Day


I have been obsessed with painting fruits and vegetables lately. When I first started painting I painted many fruits and vegetables and it's like going back to basics. Besides being alot of fun to paint, I'm refining my skills in a simple painting. I'm painting light and shadows to define the shape of the image and to achieve three dimensionality and I'm painting wet on wet to mix my colors and achieve different values.

I framed the three apples together and I'm very pleased with the results. I hope you like them too. My simple little apples!

Thanks Meera and Diana. I really enjoyed painting them!

Diana I still cannot pot a comment to your blog. I really do not know why. That was great that you taught at the Botanical Gardens. One of my favorite places to go.
