Apple on Glass Plate SOLD
This just goes to show you what happens when the color note of the background doesn't turn out the way you want. I like the apple well enough to not wipe it out though. I've been working with a very limited palette and find that sometimes it is a real challenge. The palette is Cadmium Yellow Light, Cadmium Lemon, Ultramarine Blue, Alizarin Crimson and White.
