Wenatchee Pink Lady Apples, oil 12" x 9"
In deciding on an uplifting subject with great color to play with, I chose a favorite subject. Any fruit on a vines or trees always appeals to me. My painting process was to establish a brush drawing of umber and red to establish values and basic shapes. Then, started laying in deep greens and reds. I went for establishing the hot spots of pure color next and lightened up gradually into the highlights.
