Timed gesture drawings: 1 minute, 2 minutes, and 5 minutes poses. I was aiming for loose creative lines. I used a flat piece of compressed charcoal, medium in size, to get the thick tonal lines.
I totally enjoyed painting this apple. I like how the tonal progression turned out. My color matching is improving, the colors were pretty spot on.
The white you see on the halftones and dark areas of the apple surface is the light reflecting of the wet paint. Just notice the apple stem does not go all the way down. I should fix that :0
