Steve:  Your apples look so realistic you could take a bite.  Love the colors.  Well done.

Here are my "Realistic Apples" painting. The first time, I actually painted a red bell pepper and a lime... :2funny: They are a little oddly shaped but it is nature, right?

Comments and remarks help me improve.

Thanks

Great shine on the apples!!

I am not good at cast shadows, but do think the top one should be casting more of a shadow on the light one on the right since you have two cast shadows on the lower ones facing that way.

Thank you both.

Oh now I see it! It should be a much larger and somewhat darker of a shadow.

Something I am having a difficulty with is the looking in effect that Dennis talks about.

I am very happy with your apples, well done :yippee: :yippee: :yippee: The reflected light on the bottom left apple - try to soften that edge by fading it quickly towards the inside of the apple. O0
