Green Apples in a Box


Hi there! Another painting of fruit in a box. This time I set two green apples in the box with a light and painted it in oils on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas. I am trying to slow down with these and think "value". I have quite a bit of paint on here, which I like. I feel if you are going to paint with oils why not show them off. A while back I was reading an article and it gave several points to follow as far as when your painting was completed, things they check for in a finished painting. One was does the painting read correctly from a distance and is your eye rewarded when you get up close. I love to get up close to a painting and see brushwork and juicy strokes. I think it's great we are not all trying to paint the same, there is no wrong or right way is there? My posting may slow down for a bit with the holidays and I am working on a couple of pieces for a show in February called "Dance with me". I am busy painting though and lovin it!

Have a wonderful day!
