I continued the theme of apples again today, with varying success. I was pretty happy with the second painting I did (shown above) because it involved my turpentine container, which is silver. So it is very shiny, highly reflective, and just generally tough to paint. I did my best to convey it, and I think I was pretty successful. The colors got a little muddy, and I would like to do it again, but overall I am happy with it I've included a picture of the still life setup below.
The first painting I did was of some apples in a bowl. As per usual, the ellipse screwed me up a bit. The apples are approaching the end of their useful lives, so it looks like I will be moving on to another type of fruit tomorrow. I am really hoping to be able to get outside sometime soon again. Since today was gray that probably means I can get out tomorrow. One day on, one day off.
Whew, a little worn out today actually got up at 5am to workout. Monday and Tuesday I was kind of slack and didn't get around to it until later in the afternoon. Bad Shelby.
