Apple and Pepper Grinder
Oil on canvas on panel, 6 x 6 inches -- Click Here to Buy
This apple is pretty small, and makes a nice composition with my metallic pepper grinder. I painted the apple slightly over-sized first, and carved the shape with the background color. The red part of the apple near the right cornier was initially too red (intense), calling too much attention. So I mixed more desaturated red to go over without changing the value. Squinting at the canvas well for this.
For a limited time only, this comes with a contemporary black wooden frame. The frame has 7/8" face, with a crisp clean line and it is 1.5" deep. It is ready to hang or stand alone on a counter top.
