Apple Wedges


Apple Wedges – 6" x 6" Oil on Canvas Panel SOLD

For this painting I wanted to work with triangular shapes and how the apple sides are different in the direct lighted areas versus those in shadow.

As a side note, this Friday I was accepted into the Daily Art Painters group. Which has a website and a blog. I am happy to become part of this group of daily painters. I will keep my current goal of posting 3-4 new paintings aweek along with sketches and other random images that I typically share on this blog. Thanks, Liz

Hi Liz, I think this is my favorite of all your paintings. Love the colors, the composition and especially the thicker paint in the background.

I checked out the daily art painters blog too. Nice site and your painting shows well there. Good luck with it.

Thanks Carol,your comment reaffirms my gut inspiration, as my "reasoning" was suggesting I had gone out on a limb with the green background color...

Nice. I'm glad you're talking about planning color harmony. I find it to be one of the most common faults of otherwise good paintings.

Hi Mary, I believe color is important in establishing tone, emotion, and rhythm in a painting.

Great composition and rhythm. The colors and brushwork in the negative space are gorgeous. ....Loriann
