A part of my large painting is completed: an apple part. While painting those little apples I was wondering how many times I did so (never though I painted apples in the water with watercolors :)..

I remember the times (20 or so years ago) when my teacher placed an apple as a part of a still life and explained that the roundness of this “object” will attract the viewer’s eye. And it truly did, especially with the metal spoon pointing to that apple:

I guess, for me, apples are really fun to paint: none of them, even though look alike, is the same. Each has it’s own personality:
