This is what you call "getting more mileage out of your produce". I took one of the apples from last Friday's painting and halved it for this painting. I ate half and painted half - in fact the half I painted is still in the studio and looking pretty good, thanks to the lemon juice I wiped on it yesterday. Don't think that I'll eat it today though - I'll probably send it to the rabbit shed this afternoon. My daughter's rabbits will think that day-old cut apple is a treat.
This one was fun to paint. I really like the subtleness of the small amount of red and green that shows up at the top of the apple and along the sides.
