Painting Study - Two Apples in Sunshine

6"x 6"
Acrylic on Masonite

I have been experimenting lately with really sun drenched subjects. I love how the light is just pouring over the side of the apple, bleaching out the colour. I think this is my internal craving for springtime and fair weather peeping through.

Another thing I've been focussing on is the juxtaposition of the red and greens - those two can be hard to marry within a solo object. I think I'm improving with practice.

I also like the balance achieved with the inky black table with the hot white highlight.
