"Slice of Apple"


8 x 10 Oil on Canvas Board
This wasn't one of the most successful paintings......I'm not too happy with all the detail.....I like it more when there is more paint in a painterly manner. As John Denver said in a song "some days are diamonds and some of stones". This was not a diamond painting. I still have to keep reminding myself this is a quick study. Just for practice!

Take note of the lines on the drawing that have been restated.......in the painting process you are always correcting the shapes and their relationship with the other shapes.

When setting up the still life I like to have strong light source with hard edge shadows.
