Two Slices & a Leaf

"Two Slices & a Leaf"
6x8 acrylic on canvas
Available through DPW gallery/auction

Continuing with my smaller paintings & practice with the new easel, this small apple grouping was done with a loose brush stroke & luscious red paint. I am trying to have a more painterly approach to these smaller paintings, and may even pick up the palette knife soon. I don't want to spend too much time on the details - but I don't want to eliminate them completely. (Although the idea of doing a small painting without details is appealing, so that may be on my list)

This originally had only the single full apple & 2 slices, but it was missing something. Adding the leaf gave it the balance it needed. I like that single slice with the leaf so much, I may do a separate painting of just that. Perhaps with the palette knife. 

The idea of with all of these is to have a bit of fun. All the while, I am working on a very large commissioned piece of a lighthouse. I find these smaller paintings a perfect break from the large work.

All of these smaller pieces are for sale via DPW, and are priced very reasonably.

Like how you added the bit of brown to the edges of the slices; that is reality for sure. Love the composition and the background is beautiful!
