Bottles 20x24 oil
Don Sahli Color and Temperature class.  This is the last class with Don until August for me.  These classes have been great exercises in seeing color and drawing with the brush.  The most challenging part of this still life was making the apple read as being behind the bottle.  The color difference behind the bottle was very subtle, and the apple didn't go behind until I put in a stroke to define the right side of the bottle.  The most fun part was painting the square blue bottle - it had so much going on.
