Golden delicious

This one was an exercise in frustration. I had a nice, loose finished apple with lots of character but I kept touching-up to the point where I'd nearly repainted the whole thing and it lost all its zing. So I wiped it out with linseed oil and started again. The result is above. Not nearly as snazzy as the original but an important lesson was learned... don't overpaint!

Hi Natalie
You can use the image for your blog if you like. A credit or link back to mine would be great but not required.
