Fearless Friday, Life is just a bowl of Apples!

When you see a big bowl of shiny apples, what is your first thought?

School days…fall weather….apple pie…USA?




When I see a bowl of apples it just makes me happy, like things are right with the world…




So when I saw this magazine page, I decided to paint myself a bowl of peaceful, happy apples…

No sketch today, I just started painting shapes of color




When I got to this point I got a little stuck…




So decided to use some colored pencil to deepen the darks and add contrasts




Now I wasn’t happy with the bowl




So I went back and added more watercolor




This washed out and blended the pencil strokes where I didn’t want them




I added leaf details, stems and shadows



Life is just a bowl of apples!
