Golden Apple

5 x 7 oil on canvas panel
This apple is the result of an experiment. The reasoning goes that if values are correct, a painting is believable. The color is immaterial. I did not have a yellow apple when I painted this. Instead, I used a green Granny Smith as my subject. My goal was to recreate the apple using comparable values, but different colors. I think I achieved my goal. What do you think?

Hi Nancy, I think, you have acchieved your goal. The apple looks realistic, great job.
Is it not funny, I also did an apple today, but a red one. I hope, you have had the same fun painting yours as I had with my apple.
You have some beautiful work on your blog. Doris
