Painting No. 30 - The Slice
Here's number 30 - two days late but it took a little more love to get it finished. As I mentioned in the last post we are going to stay with apples for a month and this is the second of that group.
This one started as a single apple but it felt too bare and so I added in the background one and the slice. I was very, very nervous painting that slice over my apple but made a decision, knew what I wanted to do and then I hit it.
The other positive thing about this guy is that I did most of it in one sitting. 90% of the main apple was done in about 45 minutes. I sat down, put on the new Matthew Ryan record and knocked it out. It still took a couple days of noodling to get it right but typically the first pass is a disaster.
I'm shooting for Thursday but don't hold your breath. We'll see what happens.
