Laying in the background. I like starting with off-white so that laying in white has more impact and texture.

Didn't quite like the layout in the previous, so I adjusted it so the cherries look less like they were on a slope.

And here's the finished piece. Very happy with the painting. The Jonahgold is such a pretty apple with the constellations of spots and all the complex shades of red and yellow.

If you'd like to see the work in progress shots you can walk backward through the posts.



Here's an animation of the painting as it progressed.

Another new layer. Spots added, but not yet softened and refined. Next shot will likely be the finished piece.
