Apple with Shadow

5x7 oil on clay panel

I decided to use my last clay panel.  Although I cheated.  I took a palette knife and coated the panel with a ton of gesso hoping it would stop the clay from sucking all the oil out of my paint.  It worked.  I really like the finished result of this one.  Originally, I started with two apples, with one on its side.  For whatever reason I just could not get it to work, so I wipped it and started over with just one apple.  Catching the color and tone variations across the top of the apple was really a challenge.  Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you like the painting.
