"Apple Sake" - SOLD

Click Here to Bid

I'm pretty proud of the reflection of the apple in the cup here. What's funny, is if I hadn't pointed it out, you probably wouldn't have noticed it, right? And it's what I always tell my students. The subtle things, like reflections and reflected light - if you get them right, no one's going to tell you how great they are. But if you get them wrong, everyone will notice!

so true, so true...I did see the reflection:) not that that means anything but maybe a few "brownie points" from the teacher:)

Carol, I am proud of that reflection in the cup also and see it as a focal point! Wonderfully done. I love the core shadow in the apple. Gorgeous colors- your whites are outstanding.

"The subtle things, lke reflections and reflected light - if you get them right, no one's going to tell you how great they are. But if you get them wrong, everyone will notice!" Wow! What a quote that I am going to memorize (maybe a tattoo).

For sure that's true! It's the little things, the shapes of the reflections, shadows that tell the truth. That's what makes a painting believable even if your sky is purple and your sea red!

I think the lighting in your set-up is gorgeous.
