An Apple a Day…

Sketchbook Skool Bootcamp just started for us “three-timers” (students who have taken all three semesters so far). The first assignment challenged us to draw a still life of an apple to show the progression of eating it. I can’t think of a better way to get in my daily dose of fruit!

Here’s my sketch before I painted it:

I was worried that I got too carried away with the crosshatching, but I think it turned out ok in the end. Here’s my sketch after I painted it:

Color Apples

The apple was tasty & I’m really happy with my sketch, especially the fact that I managed to keep some of those pesky white highlights in certain places!
