Apple Still Life Set Up
While surfing You Tube a few months ago I found a video by Impressionist Jerry Fresia. Of couse I had to purchase his book from Blurb. It's a great book and I have read it cover to cover several times. He really breaks it down how to paint like the impressionist. Today was my day to try it. Above is the set up. He has 5 stages and 10 steps.
