I’m still recovering a bit from traveling, I didn’t feel well today so I just setup a simple still life of a green apple and painted it for an hour. The focus on this painting was turning the form of the apple, getting it to read as if it was a three dimensional object in space.

I said simple but I will say this, during the painting I was worried that I couldn’t pull it off well. When I started the painting was looking terrible and I feared the outcome, but I also know from experience that most paintings start out really rough and need to be massaged into something worth presenting.
