"Apple on Windowsill"
8x10 Oil on Panel
Haven't posted in a while because we have been consumed with home improvement projects for the last 12 weeks. Haven't had much time to paint.
Needed something I could do in a limited amount of time, so I pulled out this painting to finish. I thought it would be fun to look at it in its various stages.
I painted it from a black and white film photo I took when we were in Portree, on the Isle of Skye, in Scotland in 2003. It was Fall and the bed and breakfast where we were staying gave us apples upon arrival.
I remember getting my camera out because I was excited by the patch of light being created on the windowsill. The light was beautiful there, especially in the late afternoon.
Adding colorI couldn't remember what kind of apple it was, so I bought a few apples and tried creating a Granny Smith. The painting became too cool.
Now I just need to come up with a title.
