Green Apples Glass Jar on Purple

This is my entry for the current Daily Paintworks Challenge,  The challenge was to paint one color per stroke.  Mix a color, put down a stroke, mix another color, put down the next stroke.  I was looking for larger and larger brushes so I could put down a larger area with one stroke.  And in a few places I fudged and actually put down more than one stroke with the same load of color.  The effect is juicier and thicker than I usually paint.  It was fun.

I love the color in this painting. The apples are very nice and great job with the glass jar.
