Two Apples

oil on linen on panel, 6x6" / unframed / sold

How this painting will look framed:

Two Apples was very enjoyable to paint. I loved capturing the vibrant colors of these fresh apples. I imagined myself biting into one and hearing the crispy crunch and tasting the sweetness of its flowing juices.

To maintain the solid look of the apples in this painting, I tried to maintain the shadow in each apple. It is the shadow that makes an object look three dimensional. The shape of the shadow also helped me gauge
the shape and size of the light areas on the apples.

May I suggest you enhance your viewing pleasure of this painting by pairing it with my recipe, Hot Apple Cobbler-a delicious, healthy, grain-free dessert.
