apple party . . .

This is my first acrylic apple painting.  It's like me . . . cute but a little too round.  I bought a 'standard' box of acrylics with the usual six colors - red, yellow, ultramarine blue and so forth.  I don't think I would recommend that for a true acrylic adventure.  I would individually buy the colors I like.  For instance I would buy phthalo blue rather than ultramarine blue and sap green rather than 'whatever' green and so on.  The adventure continues . . .

Nice apple! Couldn't agree with your more--what more is there to life than painting and coffee??

Apples are not easy to paint and you did a great job on this one! Your composition is inviting: your richness of color enticing. Enjoy! Eileen
