Winter Apple

Winter Apple
Watercolor on paper

In California, my garden has no idea it is winter.  The apple tree has new blooms, small apples, large apples, leaves that have changed color and are ready to drop off, leaves that are not going to drop off and brand new bright green leaves.  Today it over 80 degrees and tomorrow it will be warmer.  I worked on this far to long but it was fun and I enjoyed sitting under the shade of the apple tree just playing with the paint.

Comme j'aimerais me mettre à l'ombre de votre pommier...
L'harmonie des couleurs de cette toile est sublime, merveilleux jeux de verts, de jaunes, de bleus...

The tiny touches of read absolutely make this sing, Pat, but I guess you planned that :) I'm very envious of your warm day and your very own apple tree - not to mention your watercolour skills.

Stunning watercolor, Pat! I too love the red and the sun kissed look of the apple and leaves.
