Apple Duo--Original Fruit Still Life Oil Painting

Another of my apple paintings is the subject of today's painting. The color combination of green apples and purple shadows on the white ceramic plate were fun to create. You can see some closeups of the painting by clicking here. This painting is a 5x7 inch oil painting on a 1/8-inch gessoed hardboard surface. I like to paint on hardboard because it is not only an archival quality surface, but it is smooth and an easy surface on which to paint. Paintings on hardboard can last more than a lifetime if they are kept from moisutre and dampness.
