Still life with apples, stage 4

Day four in the still life with apples: today I added the stems to the apples and made the color of some apples more bright. Also I added some highlight to the apples (lightest 'white' reflecting part). Progress now is rather slow, not only due to the nice weather, but also because I now have to keep some areas dry (ie no paint). In this way I can keep the edges sharp: when paint runs over the edge into a dry area, one can polish it away again, as opposed to when two areas are covered with paint. But I hope the painting will be finished in one or two more layers. Monday I'll turn to refining the box again...

hello rene

I got the opportunity to rent the persingen church
the last weekend of june, so I have
to do a lot of stuff to meet this
deadline. (paint still lifes etc).
That's why I temporarily froze the
account.. But when the weather is nice
again, I will take a day to come over
to arnhem or westervoort and paint..
