Well, just in the interest of honesty, I'm posting this. I'm pretty much not happy with it at all. I like the apple, and I like the cloth, but there aren't enough dark darks or light lights, I think - It's all too middle ground. I tried to make the pears really loose and full of thick brushstrokes, to offset the smoothness of the apple, and to make them appear a little garish and mocking. I don't think it worked :-( I'll be going back in and reworking them, proably making the wall behind the surface a little darker (?) and adding some more darks here and there...sigh. At least with acrylics, I have that option... Posted by Picasa
