I couldn't wait to start this painting mainly because I love the colors. After the muted colors of my previous painting, this one is a joy to paint. I still have a lot to do on the bowl and apple, but I think the cloth is just about done. I may also lighten up the background color, staying with the blue but just a bit lighter. The blue is a nice complement to the red. The reflections are a little trying so i am going to simplify them a bit.
