Apples Values 2

I don’t think I achieved the contrast I had hoped for in the second apple painting (see photo below) but while painting I managed to get lost in the colours and shapes.

It was a right-side of the brain kind of painting and very satisfying.

Apple Values

This is the first of two little apple paintings. I was trying to work on my values in painting, the general rule for values is thirds, for example this one is supposed to be two-thirds light, one-third dark with a bit of mid-tones in between.

When I change the photo to black and white, it shows me whether I have accomplished this.... (see below)

The Conversation

I wish I had a really good excuse for not painting these last few weeks, there are a couple I could use, work stress and winter blahs, probably a little of both.

It took a walk downtown on an “almost spring” day to get me out of my doldrums. The warmth of the sun, the cherry blossoms, and this couple enjoying a good conversation were the inspiration for this painting.
