The quest for the ultimate apple painting continues...

Apple, 14x13.5 cm.

Go to to see if this painting is still available.

Well, That could be it.
How do you decide which edges are hard and which are soft? Does it depend in the light?
Anyway, nicely done.

I just try to compare: first find the most pronounced ones : top right at the dark purple area, and bottom left, the contrast between the cast shadow and the yellow part of the apple. Then the least pronounced one: at the reflection at the right. Here there is a lot of white/purple reflection from the table, increasing to the edge..

Thank you for answering my question. The cherry in the next post offers another useful edge lesson!

yes. I noticed again today (with the cherry), that very smooth (mirror-like) objects against a light background, have 'rim light'. I.e. just near the edge, the tone goes up. Sometimes this appears as a soft edge..
