This is a quick sketch I did last week. I go to a friend's studio to paint one day each week, and I forgot to bring the reference photo of a landscape I intended to paint from. So, there were these two apples just sitting there on the table asking to be painted, and that is just what I did! Sometimes it's nice to paint just for the sake of painting, and for no other reason.
This is by no means a "finished painting", it's just a sketch, but sometimes the unfinished ones get me more excited. I think it's because I was painting with no worries, "just because........" and, there's nothing like painting from life, it beats photos every time!
