Impressionism Oil Still-Life Study

Day 3, Color Mixing and the 5 minute Apple

Pulled out the old oil paints again. I played around for a while experimenting with my color theory exercises. Boring! So I decided to do a 5 minute apple with only the 3 primary colors (yellow, blue, and red). This was the result. No excuses…

This painting was completed entirely from life. This painting has many subtle brush strokes that is hard to view in the picture below. This is the first in a series that is available on my website.

Impressionistic Apple Blues; 6 x 6 in., Oil on Canvas; Unframed

ABOUT: ‘Impressionistic Apple Blues’ represents a big part of my area of North Carolina. Hendersonville is home to the nation’s largest apple producers on the east coast. Completed from life in my studio from local apple stands. This painting is just vivid of color secondary to the underpainting. This painting would work for any area you want to brighten up. Painted impressionistically and loose to give this painting life and causes the eye to distract on it. This is the first in a series was completed with an impressionistic style. At first glance it looks interesting, but the longer you look at it you can tell the complexity of color mixing is there. Completed with only the three primary colors; red, yellow and blue. DIMENSIONS: 6 in. x 6 in. (standard size for easy/affordable framing) MATERIALS: Painted in professional oil paints on a cotton canvas, stretched on a wooden stretcher frame, canvas has been gessoed with three coats to maintain cotton integrity, paint was mixed with my own personal concentration of oil mediums to give paint strength and adds to protection for years to come (give a nice soft varnish look when dry). Painting comes unframed, but size is standard so will be affordable. (C) Burge Mountain Artworks, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
