Apples in the Sun
I made a whirlwind visit to my dad in NC this past weekend, and I brought my pastels and swore I would produce two pictures from life. The first one is still not ready for prime time, but I may work on it more with some suggestions from Christina. It's a water scene and I still can't do water for beans. This one is the second, and it was fun to do. My dad had a couple apples on his kitchen counter that were pretty well past prime time, so rather than waste them I took them and lined them up on his porch railing and did a portrait of them. They looked quite pretty in the late afternoon light.
