Apple challenge results



My challenge to draw and paint apples finished yesterday and I am delighted with the response.  Twenty-two apples have appeared in addition to my own contribution of ten.   If I have missed anyone, please let me know and I'll add you in as soon as I can.

The final piece from me isn't new but a painting from last year. A still life of an antique jug that belonged to my grandmother and a apple.  Its classical in composition and brings back memories for me.

One of the best ways of learning is to revisit the same subject over and over again.  Each time, a new perspective appears.  The light is different.  A different medium calls you.  Each piece that I did taught me something new.  And each piece that was submitted helped me learn how others approached the same subject and gave me inspiration for more pieces.

I'd encourage you to visit the links and see an amazing variety of skills and interpretation of this simple fruit.  To everyone who took the time to add a piece, thank you.

Thanks for all your work on this. It was great to see the different takes and to "meet" some new to me artists. I love to draw and paint apples.
