Re: Edible Green

Hi Ktusa! Again I love the faceted feel of the apples...but green? I find not a trace. They are totally bold in gold! One of my favorite apples: "Golden Delicious"

I think the complimentary color for the background and general environment is well chosen, but it would seem that darker values of it would enhance the apples and bring the glass to life better. The glass is integral to your 'idea' here and it is hardly noticeable. (AISI)

Re: Edible Green

I like the first a great deal. The composition is terrific and the interplay of blues against the complementary apples is fine. The second has a duller palette which has its own charm but I find the composition a bit discombobulated.

I feel like small canvases are best enjoyed at their actual size rather than blown up so I post actual sizes with no changes.

Re: Edible Green

The second one made me laugh... like the apple is seeing its own reflection in the glass and is taken aback. ;-)

Re: Edible Green

Hi Karel. Though the lack of separation of the surface and background planes aren't real apparent, your efficiency, color and design are very "apeeling." I especially liked the way you crafted the glass wares. -Harry
