I know the shadow under the green apple is very wonky and strange looking.  I'm kinda over it for now.  :whistle:

Very happy with my apples though!  :yippee:

Ha ha...I was typing while you downloaded your apples!!  They are wonderful!  Natalie and Jackie, you have done a super job on your apples. They have lovely, yummy, highlights and shading.  :flowers:       :flowers:
I'll stay on hold til the weather cooperates.  It was 26 C, 81 F, and that was just in my apartment, so I'll wait til it cools down some. Gives me another chance to watch the replay a couple of times more!

Natalie and Jackie you both did a great painting of the apples. They look good enough to eat.

The red shadows on the bottom apples are great.

Harald,

Your apples look great.  Paint a fourth and I'd have enough for a pie!!

:clap: :clap: :clap:  Natalie and Jackie,  both your paintings of the apples are fantastic.  Looking forward to seeing the painting of the last apple Natalie but so far, excellent job.   Makes me want to do acrylics but I have too much on my plate at the moment.   Patricia

Oh my oh my how true!!! I whole heartedly agree with everything dear Lady P just said!!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

And Harald, your apples look sooo good I'm tempted to try to reach for one for a snack!!!
I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!
