You nailed it, Allison, as usual. It's almost as if you had been reading my mind while I was painting this.
Having painted scads of red apples, I decided to try some Granny Smith's.
Those grannies are a bear to paint - almost monochrome and therefore monotonous.
So I decided to make one very cool and the other very warm, and to load up the red one with lots of color.
