'Getting to Know You'

I am beginning to realise that until I paint an object I actually know very little about it ... after all, apples are round and red .... aren't they?
These are 9 little explorations of one apple, taking just 10 minutes for each look. When I started the apple was very subtle and complicated, so I decided to paint the apple in one colour using acrylic ... fantastic, just what I needed.

'50 Shades of Grey'

This is the finished painting, started on the beach with the tide pushing me hard every few minutes.
Days later I used photo references to compose a satisfactory scene. It is slightly brighter than it seems to come on the screen.
