Work in Progress 2

There has been a lot done since yesterday's photograph. The right side (as you look at the painting) of the background is fairly close to completion. The green apple (which is my center of interest) is what I painted first after the background. This was also painted with thin layers of paint.

Artist Note: The colors included Schminke indian yellow, aureolin,  translucent orange, and sap green, Daler Rowney alizarin crimson, Holbein cad red light, Daniel Smith  indanthrone blue, and quoin gold for the apples and reflections, The reflections all had some of the background colors added to them to "grey-down" their colors.

My artistic goal for this painting was to have it "feel" like an old master's oil painting: rich, dark and warm.......
