"Looking for the Perfect Apple"

I used a lovely Hudsons Golden Gem apple as a model for this painting. The real apple is actually more gold and yellow ochre in color... I just couldn't resist using the red and orange. The model is gone now too. Oh, if you ever get a chance to try a Hudsons Golden Gem... oooo it was sooo goood, so rich!

Now this is apple number 9 of the Golden Apple Sub-series, the apple actually has a sublayer of gold paint, somehow I've covered it all up. This is still a "golden" apple and a golden gem was the model.

Well, I need to continue on... I must have the "perfect" apple to virtually take to France with me for Martine!

Have a great weekend!

I've never had a Hudsons, but they look great. Love the stunning orange and yellow.
