6 X 6
Oil on Panel

This is day twenty-one of Leslie Saeta's 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.  I took a break and missed a few days of posting, but hopefully I can finish the challenge.

This is my first attempt at painting a bi-colored apple.  Not too easy to do, especially wet into wet all prima.  I had to be very careful not to stain the yellow/green with the red.

Here is how today's painting might look framed.

  1. No not easy to do alla prima - but you did a great job with that transition of the yellow into the red. Thanks for coming by my blog.
    You have some lovely pieces.

  2. I love the color contrast in this apple. So pretty!

  3. You did a great job on this, Karla. I especially appreciate your highlights. They look very natural, and that is so difficult. Well done!

  4. Great colours on this apple Karla,you're right keeping the colours clean is difficult but you nailed it!!

  5. Great Pomme painting! I have been drawing apples for years, but just starting to paint them...
