who's the fairest

Another what's-at-hand still life. I wasn't happy with the middle apple, so decided to try to make the one on the left the focus, but then those little runbacks above the middle apple occurred, calling more attention to it! So, I surrender!

The apples look so luscious one doesn't even notice the runbacks. I like the contrast of the striped cloth with the apples. You give a lot of thought to your work and it shows

Wow--I LOVE this, Laura! Yum--it's so juicy and rich color to boot. Really stunning. I like that right one, too.

Hi Laura,

One of the best things about watercolour is that you have to surrender. The paper and paint do their own dance. I love how it happens in your work.

Take care,

I loathe runbacks - especially on sky/hills, but then that is the 'quirkyness' of watercolours...
