Apple and Silver
I used this painting (which I painted a month ago) for my lesson Monday night at my intermediate watercolor class. I always do 2 paintings - the first for the example and the 2nd along with the students during the class. Although at first glance, they may look alike, I think it is interesting how different the 2 paintings are, when analyzed, done by the same artist - using the same supplies. In my opinion, the first is better than the second - the values and the apple are better in the first.
In every lesson, my aim is to teach specific watercolor skills. My students did very well on this painting - a lesson in painting reflections on a shiny object. I will post their works when they are all completed.
