This portrait of an apple is all about color to me. I did it because of the wonderful complementary colors found in this apple. Apples are one of my favorite things about fall in New England. They really are a lot more colorful than people think. I used the typical apple red mostly in the cloth it’s sitting on!
I created this piece because I liked the way the geometric shapes of this house contrast with the organic shapes of the willow tree foliage.
I was also experimenting with the shadows on the roof so that they are not just dark but have some color to them. The idea was to make the shadows translucent. After all shadows need love too, not just the light parts.
