Red Apple and Grapes
Oil on Panel 7 x 5 inches
This painting is on a rigid Ampersand tempered Hardboard Panel which is acid free and archival.
This one is something of a departure from my usual working methods. The main change is that it was painted in artificial light. Usually, I prefer to work by natural light.
It’s important to change things every now and again I think, to broaden your experience. The much shorter days and the long hours I work make it harder to paint by natural light now. And I’ve been meaning to try more top-down lighting for a while - and the only way for me to do that is with artificial lights.
What I wasn’t prepared for was that changing the lighting would also change the way I approached everything about this little painting, even down to how I put the paint down.
Experiments don’t always work out, but I’m happy with how this one came out - artificial light takes the time pressure off a little, which gives me more time to think as I paint. Definitely a big advantage!
Starting bid is $99
Payment is by PayPal - (although you can pay through PayPal with a credit card without having to set up an account, if you don’t have one).

International shipping is by UK Royal Mail International (tracked) and can take a few days to get to you. I'll let you know by email as soon as I send the painting, and give you the tracking number. I may need to allow some time for the painting to dry thoroughly before I send it to you.
