Thanks for the remakes about my simple study posted earlier.

Here's another: Apple tree acrylic on canvas 16x20 inch

Wow. That's very nice. I love the simplicity and yet so full of life. I would hang that in my dining room.

It is a very beautiful painting!
The detail is marvellous.

Do you think it might be a good idea to darker the background (to create more contrast) so that the apple pops right out at the viewer?

Or, perhaps you prefer the softness and subtlety that your painting conveys at present?

Lovely apple. I could touch it. :D

I agree with Nina that the background needs to be altered. It is too much like the apple.

Oooh, I get to be a voice of dissent today! I like the subtlety of shift from cool to warm in the background/apple. Beautiful work.

This is a very nice painting. I saw your other post too. I like these "simple studies". :)

Thanks for all the feedback

I thought like Nina and Carol about darkening the background but then thought I would loose the dark leaf on the left or the decayed leaf on the right so I kept it as it is now.

I think this year I will concentrate on fruit and other still life subjects.

Thanks again

I like it itoo :)

I think the background might add a bit more to the apples impact if it was greyed off a touch...

Don't you dare touch that background. I personally think the current combination is responsible for the serenity of the painting.

This painting is wonderfully subtle. Absolutely perfect!

Well it looks like we are pretty evenly split over the background, so I think I will just say I feel strongly both ways. (Really I love it just the way it is.) Another delicous work of art.

I absolutely love this piece exactly as it is...
Please don't change a thing...

Wow! Fantastic work! Simple compositions make the strongest statement. This one is no exception!
