Fruit of a Flower 6" x 6" oil on masonite
I will definitely replace this image tomorrow with one I take outside. Hands down, the sun is really the best lighting for artwork. When I take pictures indoors I'm always fighting with my cool and warm lights to get something close to the original. This is for the Daily Paintworks Challenge for the quick apple painting prompt. I spent awhile trying to really carve the apple out of space. I like a sense of realism mixed with painterly blocks of color, I usually try to marry the two.
