Gallons of Galas

June 25, 2017

Gallons of Galas – Oil on Canvas – 11″ x 14″

Started as an example for my Saturday morning students. The reference photo is this bucket of apples sitting on a deck. I used this reference to cover three aspects of design.

First, cropping the photo to create a more dynamic composition. Second, to remove/replace objects which do not aid or enhance the focal point (the redwood stained planks of the deck were a distraction and did nothing to augment the bucket of apples). And finally, utilize a complimentary color to enhance interest in the red apples. Love the result.
