apple October Monthly Sketch Project Challenge

I am participating in the new Monthly sketch project and this was my attempt at the apples photo Leslie Hawes provided for the challenge. The red apple was not difficult, but I really had a difficult time with the green one getting it the color that I was satisfied with. I have been taking classes in acrylic painting so decided that I would use acrylics for this project.

Class-phase 3

Class-phase 2, originally uploaded by kquilts.

This was done during the third of 6 acrylic painting classes. I still need to work on foreground area and do some corrections on the taller of the jars. I also need to work on the basket of daisies. I hope to finish this with the next class. I do hope to sign up for another session of these classes. I do feel I learn more in a classroom setting than on my own.

Today was the second day of my acrylic painting class. It went well. We went over some things and then started doing underpainting to establish the values in the painting- not so much detail yet. The teacher said that we will probably take 2 more classes to get get in the details and refine to the finished piece. I'm enjoying this class very much and would like to take the follow up class that starts in late October.
