#1 - You like apples?

8" x 6" - Acrylic on canvas board

Ta daaa!!! My first painting of the year. And it can be YOURS for only $1! What a bargain.

What I like about it - Well for one, I was painting. That's always fun. And it was nice to hold a brush again after so long. I love the vibrant green of Granny Smith apples, so it was a challenge to mix the colors (somewhat) properly.

What I don't like about it - it looks somewhat cartoonish to me, but I was overworking it so I took it to what was it's most successful point without starting over and stopped. I also think I could have done a better job with composition. I would like to maybe try it again with the apple much larger, there's too much background showing.
