Still life plate of apples (work in progress)

I started a larger still life painting this afternoon, featuring a plate of apples. Tried a new way of painting (new for me): the sight-size method. In this way of painting one judges the changes to be made on the canvas from a distance of 4 or so metres away. At a distance it is easier to see differences between the subject and the painting in progress. Disadvantage is that one has to keep walking to and from the painting all the time...

Still life plate of apples (work in progress), 45x40? cm.

Go to www.postcardfromholland.com to see if this painting is still available.
