Carol Marine Class Day 1 Exercise 2

Apple Values
6"x6" oil on canvas panel

This was my first attempt at the 3 value study (sorry to post them out of order!). I was trying for dark dominant, light secondary and just a smidge midvalue, but it's harder than it looks. Perhaps bigger darker apples? I like this one though, and I think it does pass the drama test; from across the room, it grabs you.


  1. Oh, I like this Bobbi, I can see the dark green or red, depending on the apple of course. Yes, I saw the red apples first.
    Nice value study!

  2. yes it does look good. Good placement. Drama.

  3. This is beautiful Bobbi! I think you wound up with the light dominant, dark secondary, and a smidge of medium, and it works really well!

  4. Thanks for sharing some of Carol's techniques. I have been following her blog for a few years and hope to take her workshop someday. Looks like great fun.
