'Green Apple with Jug'

'Green apple with Jug'
6" x 6"
oil on board

I'm always impressed by the 'greenness' of Granny Smith apples, it makes them look so fresh. I used burnt sienna as a ground colour which still peeps through in places and helps to bring warmth to the painting and I introduced lemon yellow back into my palette to capture the cool greens of the apple. The uncropped 'duo' of objects standing alone and isolated from each other seems to work in this piece.
