Saturday Grannies

8 x 10 oil on gessoed hardboard
Painting these Grannie Smith apples has proven to be a wonderful way to experiment with color. My pallet consisted of alizarin crimson, cad orange, cad lemon yellow, thalo yellow green, ultramarine blue, and when I am all finished I use a little titanium white to help with the highlights.

Love the red and greenish of this. Also liked the Crab Dinner and the lady at the concert with the yellow flower in her hat.

Enjoy the wonder of it all,
