Having received a Harry and David package for Christmas, I couldn't let the fruit disappear before drawing a few apples. The skin of these apples have such varied colors that it was fun working out the markings in colored pencil. However, after reviewing the work as a photograph, I see it doesn't have enough shadow to hold the apples to the table top. I wanted them to reflect the light but not float above the table. Next I will gather the threads for embroidery to replicate these three or maybe just one apple.
