Bowl with apples



8X10
Oil on canvas

I found this bowl in a thrift shop and was determined to find a role for it in one of my paintings, so I added some trusty apples.

How does it look?

Outstanding, Bill. I think you've become the "Apple King" of WC!

Re: Bowl with apples

No one does apples as well, Bill! They fit anywhere really with any subject. I love the old antique look to the thrift shop bowl that can be used again and again in set ups, even having fruit or beads spilling out, even flowers. Beautiful!!!

Re: Bowl with apples

I've seen (and painted) a lot of apples, but what I really like is the inside of the bowl. Well done!

Re: Bowl with apples

Really lovely. I enjoy your value placement, a dark earthy band, then an interesting, flowing "white" shape, then another dark earthy band. Colors on the white fabric and reflections on the table top are super.

Thanks, all, for looking and commenting.
I'm working on another painting with this bowl.
Slow, but getting there.

I used to live in Hamilton NJ before moving south. Love this painting! Beautiful earth tones without getting muddy. Love the inside of the bowl, too.

Kate
Alabama's gain, Hamilton's loss.
I hope that things are working out for you in our wonderful south.
Thank you for looking and commenting on my bowl.
You might know the Salvation Army thrift shop on Rte 33 where I found it.
I love it and am trying more paintings featuring it.
