"An Apple a Day" 6"x6", oil on canvas

Available for $100, contact me.

The clock face I knew was going to be hard but it wasn't the numbers, it was getting the color right.   It had both the orange and blue in it and it was light with shadows and highlights.  Orange and blue are opposites so it ends up being a grey.  At first I had it too dark but as the day progressed it the light on it became lighter and that worked out better.

Saw this on the International Daily Painters Blog and had to come here and tell you how awesome this piece is. The light, the detail, the fun composition....wow.

Thanks Shelia, I almost didn't paint it but I'm glad I did!
