Took a break from challenges and painted this did a trace for placement of apples off of a ref pic. Then just went at it on the canvas layer. This prints out at 3.5 in by 2.5 it was kind of a test for me to see if I could still paint at that small of a size. :lol:

lovely painting Marge. perhaps the material is blurred compared to the apples, and a bit more work on them would help the painting? I do like the apples though.

Thank you Kristen, Annie, Jean, Lightfast, Barry and Lucy for the nice comments and you are right Barry the material is blurred compared to the apples I was using a new brush to see the effects of it and I think it would have been crisper at a larger size but when I sized the brush down to work on this it made it a lot softer brush stroke. Live and learn LOL :lol: :wave:

Marge, it's interesting how the "feel" of a brush can change at different sizes. I really like how you've managed to make the apples glisten with moisture. Nice work.:)

Marge, great contrasts here! I like the looseness of the image and the shine of the apples! Yum! :)

I love the "solidness" of the apples!
