Here's the final one of this little series of apples. Unfortunately the color on them is starting to turn a bit and has lost it's luster (in my eyes.) So I thought I throw an old standard into the mix . . . one of my many tiny sketch books and #2 pencils. The lighting from directly above gave the scene a bit of an ominous feel, and turned some ordinary apples into something a bit Hitchcockian (is that a word?)

When I do these small warm up sketches I like to still keep things relevant to my everyday goings on, this keeps me interested and my eyes fully 'awake' to what I'm looking at. On this particular day I was getting some of my seedlings (we do a bit of vegetable and herb gardening) ready to transplant and I had just bought another few grapefruits for us. The number 2 pencil, well I've been painting those since I can remember painting.
