A Little Apple Still Life

I've been painting some small watercolors for the upcoming "Fine Works in Miniature" exhibit at Artistree Gallery here in Woodstock.  Here is the beginning of the first painting--the lightest yellows over a pencil drawing of the three apples....

Next come the oranges, greens and reds.  The middle apple is still at the beginning stage and the closest one is almost complete....

Moving along, the apples are completed....

Finally, the apples are grounded with shadows and "a place to live".  And here is the finished product!
