Painting No. 29 - Three Apples

8" x 8" - Oil on Canvas
SOLD


Here's No. 29 and we are back to fruit. I had a lot of discussions about where to go and what caused the painters-block (is that a term?) I had a couple of weeks ago. Rank diagnosed it as being caused by me jumping around too much. His idea was to buckle down on a single subject for a while, really learn how to paint that and then move on. So, that is what we are going to try for a while. I plan on staying with apples for the next four weeks and pushing them as far as I can.

This specific painting is a relatively simple composition but it has a nice vibe to it. The apple on the right took a lot of love to make sure he looked like he as sitting on the side. The whole thing required a light touch to keep it from looking overworked even though it took some effort to get it finished.
