Picking Apples

This is from a photo reference.  I photographed my good friend and fellow painter Peg Anderson many years ago in a white gown (my idea totally) Looking at the series of shots I became very interested in the stark contrast of the dark apple tree in shadow and the background bright  sunlit area and particularly what happens to white in this setting.  It's a small painting (8 x 6) finished in one intense setting and it's still very wet. sold
