Now with work in progress ready, with palett and all!

I have been watching some of my blogfriends painting this from challenge number 35 at paint and draw together where you also can see the original oil painting by the artist Delaporte. I couldn´t resist trying to paint it myself. And a good thing; while doing this painting a finally found a colour that I like for my red apples! You learn so much all the time and I LOVE it! I first mixed the two colours I thought would be perfect for the apples, and then I tried it on a small piece of paper, but I didn´t like the result. Then instead I painted a fairly strong mix with one of the colours and let it dry properly before I painted a somewhat similar strong mix on top with the other colour. And now I´m very happy about the result! But; soon you can read the details in the WIP -pages (look in the meny above). I have taken several photos during the process of this painting, and I promise to show the photos in the WIP -page before this weekend has ended, if you are interrested in having a look.

  The original painting is painted by the
artist Henri -Horace -Roland Delaporte.
Titel: Egg Basket 

And also; here is the final version (without the 
tape) of last posts painting:
