Still Life: After a Walk

I went for a sunset walk around my apartment building, looking at the different trees and wild flowers. Finding some winged seed pods, a flower and a miniature apple (I've never seen one so small before!) I took them home and decided to do a still life. The little apple was really interesting both to paint and to find. First of all it was just sitting under its tree like it hadn't fallen but just climbed down on its own, and now was resting leisurely against the trunk of the tree. Painting it was also really enjoyable, mostly because I felt really relaxed and played with a bunch of colors and worked at layering them.
