Apples

blue mug and apples on orange plate: print

Apples: there so many of them on the trees that they beg to be the subject of a print..

Version 1: Painted monoprint: Still life: Blue mug and apples on orange plate

Can observe the effects of wet/dry paint and some of the merging that happens. The sketch highlighted the negative shapes of the white reflections.

Version 2: Backdrawing: Apples in a crate.

The first version was too wet and there is little definition.

The second, after a lot f the paint has been picked up is a bit better.

 Finally I drew freely, looking out of the window at the apple trees trained against the fence.
