Oil on 5"x7" hardboard panel
I'm always attracted to the striking green and red pattern of colors on these apples. I think it's funny sometimes, the extra time I take to pick out fruit at the store because I'm more interested in the colors, shape, and stem than it's ripeness.
I can imagine other artists doing this, maybe taking twice as long to pick out a bouquet of flowers, or a piece of cheescake, fruit, or a certain vase because they are wondering how the light will fall on it, what color would they mix for the shadow area, what color could the background be??? .. and on and on...
