Little CrabApples - sold

These apples are from a friend's tree. I think that's the only way you get the leaves with the apples. They are some really small variety of apple. They were a challenge to paint, because the red is so deep, it's almost wine colored.

Wow, nice job! Great brushwork and the color of the light being reflected off the top of the larger apple is beautiful - very effective.

Love this one! Great composition with the leaves, stems and shadows. The deep read really comes through as well! Just lovely!

wow, I love this one. Look at those delicious planes of color shape those apples. Beautiful work! said...

Are they still your friends now that you have taken their apples?

Nice painting. You have such a painterly manner you could have done this work while they were still on the tree. This might have prevented them from thowing eggs at your house tonight.
