Still Life with Apple

Hi there, Last Monday my group and I painted still lifes. I think painting from life is the very best thing we can do as artists. Photos are fine to paint from and sometimes we have no choice but to see an object in 3-D is so much better. I find still lifes to be wonderful to paint, you can design your painting by the choice of props and the way you set them up and decide about your light source and direction. I completed this pretty much during our session and it was fine, by fine I mean a good depiction of my set up but it was a bit boring. I brought it home and laid on heavier paint and pushed it around creating much softer edges and I like it much better now. This is acrylic on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas. I am offering this on a buy now option through paypal for $65 plus $5 shipping anywhere within the continental US. This is a standard size and very easy to frame.

De très belles nuances orangées dans cette nature morte... Un joli hymne à l'automne.
Gros bisous
