22x13 watercolor on Saunders 140 lb cold press paper, titled Applecations for my class demonstration.
Using a fresh apple I drew it 3 different ways in a vertical format, then drew a rectangle letting the top and bottom fruit overlap edges. With primaries Permanent Rose, Arylide Yellow, and Prussian Blue I painted a wet-in-wet wash over the design. After drying, I began to color and tint apples and inside rectangle from light to dark keeping a high key image. In wet areas I sanded watersoluble colored pencils for texture. Lastly I brushed in negative shapes for leaves, apples, and stems throughout.
