Daily Painting Practice - A Bold Assembly

I should have lowered the painting to make it easier to compare. For the moment just tilt your head. I let this under painting dry overnight before adding the color the next day.
That's better ...my neck was getting sore.....At this point the only part I liked was the plum. The red was driving me crazy....I was silently using a colorful vocabulary to compliment my palette.
The glazed porcelain was an added challenge.

A Bold Assembly

oil on masonite

The reflective table surface is actually the back of a piece of masonite I purchased from the art store with the cellophane wrapper still on it.

A very good painting but I think the green apple reflection in the dark apple made it look flattened on that side.
