Apples to Apples

Apples to Apples (6" x  6") oil on masonite
The green apple on the bottom is the same one from the last two posts. I was thinking a lot about each brushstroke, then using a paper towel to manipulate the mark. I like how sensuous the cloth is in contrast to the hard shiny apples. I also enjoy how the stems point to one another. I'm satisfied with this piece, here is the sketch I made before I started.


  1. The finished painting is great. You've showed us the value of the prep work. I even love the sketch.

  2. Thank you Bobbi! I'm glad you like the sketch, I'm going start posting more. :)
