8x10, oil on masonite
A little different direction for me - I've only painted a couple other still lifes, both of pears.
I didn't like these apples until I set it aside to dry and stepped back a few feet - then it all came together. I think the fruits are not large enough on the canvas, but when framed it's less apparent. And by the way they were very delicious apples.
The great thing about painting food is that the items are a tax-deductible business expense. I'm thinking next time I will paint a large pizza and a pitcher of beer.
