Apple ala Nina


Browsing the internet blogs this morning I stopped at Nina

Johansson's and looked through her Brown Journal she is sharing there. You really ought to go look. I find inspiration there, eye candy and learn a thing or two each time also.


Anyhow, this time I saw an apple I thought looked easy enough for me to try in my own journal. I got one out and gave it a shot. Then I ate it and halfway through I thought I should have taken a comparison photo of it to my painting. So in the second picture here you can see the real apple compared to my painting. I then painted the core but didn't take another photo. This time you just have to trust me, lol!
This also fits EDM challenge number 24. How lucky is that?

  3. Hey, beautiful work! And you did the core (is that what it´s called in English?) too, that´s a great idea! You seem to have found the EXACT colours of that apple, and that sheen on it is exquisite! : )

  6. Love the coloring---would have recognized it as a Gala without the name!
    And the eaten version is very nice---lovely balance to the work.

    XXOO!!

  15. What fun! The apple is beautifully done, and the core adds so much interest to the spread. I like the different textures.

  16. Great drawing and a wonderful blog post!!! The colors, shine, everything are just spot on in your drawing and I love that you drew the core also. However, the STORY of what you did is the clincher, love it!

  18. Terrific job with them apples! :) Thanks for your comments on my toe shoes. You're right, you can't find any green ones yet. And I just bought a red pair for my wife today she's so excited. Everyone should really give those shoes a try ;)

  24. Looked at this earlier in time, but did not have time to leave a comment then. Awesome work here. I have been wanting to do an apple, and I have some stretching to do to measure up to this post. Great art!!!
