    starting to get it. can be pretty frustrating.

    Tried to copy some of the mark making that Trashy used, but no dice.

    r3d, that painting is SO MUCH BETTER than your first. i mean, maybe you paint around that level normally and were just getting used to wacom, but damn, so much better. nice job

    Thank you guys. The feed back is really encouraging. I plan to do at least one or two more today if I can sit still long enough.

    First painting from life...

    I'm still pretty new to all this stuff, but I'm encouraged by the feedback and such here. I didn't have time to finish this last night (time is limited due to various reasons) but hope to finish/refine it tonight.

    In any case, here's the initial sketch and the rough blocking. C&C are definitely welcome, though I don't know if asking for that is premature at this stage or not... I've owned a wacom for quite a while, but haven't done a lot of painting type stuff with it, and never sat something on my desk and tried to draw/paint it/match the colors, etc -- so it's a bit overwhelming, but I'm going to give it my best shot. I just hope the apple holds up

    Initial sketch:

    Swatches and initial blocking (arrows denote ones I'm actually using in the sketch, other ones indicate various attempts at getting a specific color):

    Thanks...

    Off to a good start ascent, I do notice however, in your blocking you have a lighter green next to your shadow and darker colors facing your light source, that maybe something totally different from what I'm seeing, can't wait to see your finished product.

    go for a wider range of values with your palette. if that's really what you're seeing try to get more dramatic lighting on the apple. other than that off to a good start! finish up

    ya, throw in some light red for modeling detail, maybe brown for your darker side of the apple, and yellow as a lighted side, whilst keeping green as your base. Don't limit yourself to monochromatic, it just ends up being a challenge.

    Grenapples: Hmm thats a clever little trick with the stylus...I forgot you can program that middle button, Ill give that a shot when my new wacom comes in. Great onion post BTW =)
    Trashy:That apple has a nice balance of control and expression...I really like the style, you should keep that consistent! Nice color scheme as well.

    Thanks for the feedback, guys... I think I'm still struggling with painting what I see vs painting what I think it should look like... I'm reading a neat book called Drawing By Seeing that talks about that... Also, I think in the initial color sketch, I hadn't really been taking value into account -- I was focused more on the basic colors that seemed to be there.. Taking your feedback(s) into account, I tried to expand and revise the colors. I also started blending a little and got a little bit into the detail (on the stem) which I know is getting ahead of myself, but just couldn't resist :-/

    In any case, my time to draw has come to an end for the evening (again, much too quick) and so I'm posting where I'm at. I hope the apple holds out long enough for me to finish! It's tough to find "drawing time" when you've got a fulltime day job, toddler and a very pregnant wife

    Here's revision #08. Thanks for the feedback so far, please keep it coming! It's very encouraging. The colors down near the bottom are the new ones I've added/modified in this version.

    30 mins. Shadow was a tad awkward because I'm on a glass desk. I should have done the reflection, lol...

    That's a very white apple . . . maybe you could pull the tonal value down a little bit?
