APPLES

Watercolor on 140lb. cold press h2o paper and 8"X10" in size with a deckled- cut trim. Initial green hues wash was applied wet-on-wet with a flow from top to bottom by holding the paper at a sharp angle. After this initial wash dried, I painted in the negative dark shapes between the apples and finished by painting the little bit of foliage. Time to bake these apples with a sweet crumble crust on top... yum, yum, eatem up!

Beautiful work and thanks for sharing how you created this one. Hope the apple crumble was good!

Hi, Rhonda! You know, the apple crumble was sick!

Definition: "sick" - California surfer word meaning "awesome".

Prabha, thank you. I'm into my fluid wet-on-wet period.
