10"x8" acrylic on masonite
This painting was a joy to paint. It was fun focusing on the variety of shadows and tones in this piece. I found each apple to be so unique. Each had its own shape, color and details. Really looking forward to painting another one like this. I decided to add a few photos to demonstrate the steps of my painting.
I made this box out of foam core to block outside light.
By doing this I can easily control the light source on my subject.
Roughed in some darker colors to build lighter colors on
Added shadows and mid tones
I finished the painting with the lightest colors, details and highlights.
