Just Picked Atumn Apples.still life,oil on canvas,price$200

While as the storm raged outside yesterday my painting got heavy with paint. It was too wet and dark to take a picture of yesterday painting outside until today. I think people are right when they say a gray day is the best time to take an image of your painting outside. The image isn't too dark, too yellow, too blue.
