apple slices



After using layers of paint yesterday, and taking advantage of the gouache's opacity, I thought I'd try to see how transparent I could keep it - how little could I put on the page and still get the feeling of the apple slices left from a child's dinner?


How much ...? Not much, apparently. That's a good assignment to give yourself. I tend to add too much and then miss the earlier version that I just painted over. I like how it also takes merely a small shadow to suggest the third dimension.

The colours are so delicately tasty. I like that dash of green, which speaks of a tartness.
