This one took a bit longer than usual. I find painting two toned apples to be a bit of a challenge. First you are contending with your highlights and shadows and then you have to keep your green to red hues in check. A bit of back and forth is required in the matter.
I chose my floral pattern plate here - I liked how the green of the foliage complemented the green-y yellow of the apple, plus there is that white hot highlight on the right hand side where the light hits the gold rim of the plate.
