My plan for today's painting was to paint something with an easy shape and not much details. I wanted to experiment with different techniques using the pastel sticks and pencils. Well, painting this apple turned out to be much harder than I thought. This is a small 4"x6" painting so it was hard painting small shapes and especially details. I learned a lot from doing this painting. I want to paint this again and to try not to focus so much on the details but more on the overall shape, shadows and values.
