Autumn is here and it means time for harvest. Our tiny apple tree gave unusually many apples this year. I placed some in a basket on the kitchen counter and I felt that the green colour transmitted a lot of positive energy so I decided to perpetuate these apples on a canvas. I see this painting ending up hanging in somebody´s kitchen and with its intense colour give the viewer a good start of the day. I like the fall as it often means new beginnings,,, can be a course, new job or any other change that push you forward. During the summer and the holidays, hopefully, we have gathered power for new challenges. The painting is painted in acrylic and with rich detail work with different brushes, so achieve that the colour and shape become as realistic as possible.
Keen on green.
Green for me is vitality. In the nature you will find all possible green shades, in the leaves , plants , fruits etc. The challenge is always to find the right balance in the colours. I mixed different green-yellow tones before I found the right one for my apples. If you would like to give me some feedback on how I have succeeded and what I could improve, I would be delighted. That helps me to develop as an artist. You can find the painting in the gallery, in the category “Still Life”.
