Reflecting on Apples

Apples are one of my favorite subjects. I don't know why. This is for The Rookie Painter Challenge. I was upset about the line through the top apple. I did not realize that this paper had another drawing on the other side of it until it was too late. When the paper got wet it showed through and unfortunately dried that way too. .The other picture on the pack was an oil pastel that had stuck the next page to it so I did not notice. Lesson learned! Alas I will not submit it, but you can go look at the others if you want.

Ahhh Beans !

This is in response to the Paint and Draw Together Blog Challenge hosted by Lela Stankovic who has been a wonderful virtual teacher to me . Not to say that I have mastered it by any means. I know I have a lot to learn and that is part of the fun. She challenged us by giving us a photo with nothing but a gray background and she asked us to use aerial perspective. I had no idea what this meant but she took time to explain it to me and gave me some examples. Now I at least know what it is and here is my attempt at it.
