Green Apple Slices Pewter Bowl Tablecloth

Another pewter bowl painting.  The light is from the right.  It hits the pewter bowl, bounces back and hits the back side of the closest apple.  It was fun to capture that reflected light.  I also worked on softening edges - for example the lip on the far side of the cup. The strong color dominance creates unity and harmony, but is enlivened by the touch of red in the reflection.
