Original Oil Painting Apples and White Daisies

Apples and Daisies


12" x 12"
Painted on gessobord.

These apples sparkle! I love the way you can wash and shine up apples. So my goal was to capture what attracted me to this still life. To make the apples shine and show their vibrant colors! Keeping the table a neutral grey helps the apples' colors stand out. When I was painting this still life I had yellow daisies. I changed them to white to help keep the background neutral but there is so much contrast with the leaves I am not sure that worked. The daisies balance the composition so nicely and can stand their ground with the apples so I stayed with the white decision. I am happy with my decisions and I hope my viewers are too.
