Green Apples

Two Granny Smith Apples – 6" x 8" Oil on Canvas Panel SOLD

A few months ago, an artist I admire, Kurt Schwarz, made the assertion that artists should paint green apples as they are lighter and are more challenging to paint than red apples. With this in mind, I chose to purchase a few Granny Smith apples and see what he was talking about. I believe he is correct, in the past painted I have Macintosh and Gala apples however with this painting of apples and another to follow, I learned that green can be an elusive color to capture.
