Apple - part II
I finished an oil painting last Friday of an apple, a challenge that was thrown out by one of the members of my local art group.
I wanted to play around with other mediums for it and started the next version in pastel. Pastel is not in my comfort zone, but I enjoy using it. I started laying down colour in broad strokes but don't like the final result. Too bright, too red, too.....I don't know.
This is done on St. Armand paper, made in Montreal. Its a denim rag paper with a soft tooth.
