Working on ideas for an upcoming competition. Using apples for the props, I played with a couple ideas.

On Apples 413, I used a photograph. I finished the painting using a palette knife to “smear” paint onto the apples and pail. It added an interesting burst of more pure color.

On Apples 513, I set up apples and did it plein air. I rearranged the placement of the apples and light source. I finished the work by using green, the compliment of red, to complete the background. The application of the complimentary color helps add “pop” to the red of the apples.
