Apple and Silver

"Apple and Silver" is my effort for the monthly project of the Watercolor Workshop online group from Yahoo. The source photo is chosen by a moderator and everyone who wishes to participate must paint from this picture. This photo is originally a source photo from Wet Canvas image library.

This painting is 9" x 12" and it is painted on 300 lb. cold-pressed Arches watercolor paper. This is nice and tight - right up my alley!

This is just stunning, Barb! Love the palette (it so pops!) and your work on the silver teapot is unparallelled!

Yep, Barb, this is stunning.
I love the reflections of the red striped fabric!
Totally WOW.

Hello Barb:) I know how difficult silver is to paint but you did a terrific job on it. My compliments. Can you give a link to that challenge? Thank you!

Barb Sailor said...

Thanks, Renate! I sent you a link today - did you get it?
