Again With The Apples


Again With The Apples  oil 6x6

Apples are my default subject when I haven't painted in a while.  I painted this in January, and experimented with laying in transparent darks with a hog bristle.  The effect really doesn't read right in a photo, but when you see the painting in person the dark passages are luminous rather than like a dark hole.  You can see the texture of the canvas and the brush through the dark transparent paint.  In contrast, light areas of the subject are painted opaquely which makes them look even more lit.
