Still life with apples, stage 1

Have to paint a number of larger multi-layer still lifes in the weeks to come, so not so much time for daily paintings. Thought therefore it would be interesting to post the stages of these larger still life paintings instead, to show the development of a painting. Started today with this box with apples. The first layer of a larger painting looks a bit rough and sketchy compared to the smaller ones, because one has to work on more objects in a limited time. Today I only had 2 hours to paint because I'm expecting a visitor later on...

Still life with apples, stage 1, 42x35 cm, oil on masonite.
