In the Spotlight


This is a piece I painted, and repainted, and repainted--trying to get the glow on the center apple and have the two side apples be supports to the center of interest without overpowering it.  I think I finally succeeded with that idea after a lot of looking and tweaking.  The center apple is also basically the same one I used for the watercolor in an earlier post, which I had done as preliminary work for this piece.  I still want to go back and do the solo apple in oiil and hopefully, I'll get to that.  I also find I like working in this long format for a change and hope to find more subjects that fit the space.
