Carol's Apples

I have to give a nod to the Maestro herself for this one. This is my version of a painting Carol did in class. I set up the same apples and background and painted it step by step as she did in her demo. I did premix some colors in the beginning which helped tremendously with the process and I didn't fuss with the brushwork. I hope I put some of myself into it too. Tomorrow, I'll post the apple exercise I did in her class along with the finished version of that one. Quite a difference.

Very nice, I love the colors in this one. A workshop with Carol, I'm so jealous.

Really nice brushwork in this one!

Love the chunky brushstrokes. Keeps it fresh. I think it's great that you do this - it just reinforces the workshop.

Great work. I like the one from your other site, too.

thank you all! I loved doing this! Carol's way of carefully laying down each stroke is brilliant. This is where so many of us fail, losing the freshness in the process.
The lesson is that less is more.
Carol's workshop was a turning point for me as I have admired her work for three years and found that it still excites me. Plus, she is a great person.
