Hot Off the Vine - Revised

Revised a bit with some darks and softer lights.

And next stage of the Apple Baskets - I don't know, it may be time to declare defeat on this one and forget about it. There are just some things I cannot paint no matter how many times I try and maybe it's like the Bengals this season and winning :( just can't do it!

what a wonderful deliciously soft basket! you scored big with this one.....
hope you are good.. and things are fine.

did you go to italy with sandy?

The hot pepper is absolutely exquisite!

I also like the basket and the background - and I see you are struggling with the apples. When I reach this kind of dead-end, I usually go for line and texture, but that's my personal style.

Hey, Carol, thanks for stopping by and for your support on this one. I'm doing fine and dandy. Didn't go to Italy with Sandy - went to British Columbia instead :)
Nava, thanks for your comments. I am struggling with the apples - can't seem to get my mind around them and get past the ugly stage! Maybe some pen and ink would save this one.
