I really like this portrait Janet. He may look like he's pouting, but I looked at the photograph and he looks like he's pouting there too!

I looked at the photograph some more, and I think he doesn't have any teeth! Anyway, your painting matches the photograph.

I think apples prefer to run in packs April 2010 Challenge - Page 2 Icon_twisted
I've been stuck on the computer for awhile now, haven't touched my painting in more than a week. Have to get another project done tonight. Maybe I'll get back to it this weekend.

Callie: I can sure tell you've put a lot of effort into those apples! I agree with Sofie--it feels like you could just reach in and eat one. I would consider it finished if I'd done that, but can't wait to see what they look like when you're done.

In real life - I'm still seeing a lot of black background showing through the green. So I guess a few more layers are needed to get the coloring and shadows down. I'm putting a wasp in the upper left area, too. April 2010 Challenge - Page 2 Icon_biggrin

cheers Wow Callie your apples look fantastic! I'll have one as well! So what do think of the black gessoed canvas? Great idea to add a wasp! Is that to keep from stealing your apples. Smile

I think the wasp flew in from all the old dutch masterworks I've come across in the Art Hist. Challenge. So many of the still life paintings have bugs in them. Life in the days before food was kept in a fridge and windows had screens! April 2010 Challenge - Page 2 Icon_eek

very funny I've seen some of those old dutch masterworks and wondered "what's up with the bugs". I think you explained it. Smile
