Red Delicious Apple No. 2 - A Painting a Day

Daily Painting #40 – Red Delicious Apple No. 2
(Click image for larger version)

Oil on gessoed matboard
Approximately 5.5 x 5.5 inches — 14 x 14 cm

The fine red skin around the apple slice was difficult. I was struggling to keep it from mixing with the surrounding colors.

Whenever I encounter this problem, I say that I’ll let the painting dry for a day or two before adding the fine lines and strong highlights. Then I remember to thin the paint with enough medium and I say, “Why didn’t I do that earlier?”
