Green Apples- Progress- Oil

I'm doing a small commission of green apples and have done a Pastel version first (posted). The final will be a square format- this was done before that option. Many glitches that I will correct are in this one, but a good start to shift mediums.

Re: Green Apples- Oil

I thought for a second I had shifted to a parallel universe, I KNOW I saw this in pastels!

Your version in oils is just as lovely.

Re: Green Apples- Oil

Thanks Jessica! You and I both did- there are many things I like about the oil (clean color, the happy accidents) - just the wonderful things oils can do. The future will be amazing-

Re: Green Apples- Oil

Thank you Sarah! A setup from life helps with that a lot for me. There are some quirks in the composition that will be corrected in the next version.

Re: Green Apples- Oil

hi Ken: such a great painting for the season. We have a large orchard close by, famous for their apples.
I like the kind of Cornucopia idea and the confident brush and color.

Re: Green Apples- Oil

Thank you Loretta! The background is wholly improvised with the intent to support the elements-

Re: Green Apples- Oil

Thanks Simona! I appreciate you taking a look at both- there are differences about each that are good, and the hope is to have everything(!) show up in the final.

Re: Green Apples- Oil

This latest version is in the new vertical format and larger at 9x12- moving toward the final size of 16x20. Much looser and faster application- working toward a more painterly process.

I've created an evening sky and barn into the window that really adds a lot to the story. Also will be adding something(?) more to the upper left curtain area, maybe a delicate pattern or textures- not a lot, just to add interest.
