Red Delicious Apple -- Daily Art



Sennelier oil pastels on white ProArt sketchbook paper, 4" cropped to square from a 4" x 6" page. Painted from life from one of the apples Karl brought home in a big bag.

Today I received my DVD from Alyona Nickelsen and fell in love with her version of the Red Delicious Apple. Her incredible realism inspired me to notice many details on my real apple that I might have otherwise missed, and her color combinations helped make this oil pastels version much richer in color.

You can get the DVD if you order her new book Colored Pencil Bible from her website, www.BrushAndPencil.com and she also includes another CD with the photo references and outlines for projects from the book plus some Stonehenge paper to try it. The special offer was only for the first 100 orders, but they sold out fast and she's doing a second run. Get it while you can, this video is great!
